Lee Young-Pyo says he's 'very satisfied' with his first season in the Premiership.

The South Korean international – confirmed as part of his country’s World Cup squad last week – played 30 of a possible 36 games after making his debut at home against Liverpool four matches into the campaign.

Young-Pyo, 29, had to learn about the English game on the spot after his switch from Dutch giants PSV and was pleased with how his season unfolded.

"I wanted to learn about English football and I certainly know more now," reflected Young-Pyo at Spurs Lodge. “It's been a very good experience for me and I'm very satisfied with everything.

“I've learned a lot about the Premier League and that's been good for me. It's one of the strongest leagues in the world. The matches are very fast.

“In the Netherlands, you can control matches but in England it's very difficult. There is no easy team in the Premiership. Every team is very strong and the players are strong.

“I've played almost every match and that's been important for me."
