West Bromwich Albion's Billy Jones says he is now starting to "feel like a Premier League player" after a series of consistent performances this season.
The former Crewe and Preston defender made his 40th appearance for the club against Newcastle this weekend and marked the occasion with a goal, securing a point for his side in the process.
Upon his move from the Championship to The Hawthorns, Jones said he felt confident initially but explained that a run in a strong West Brom team has also given him a good deal of self-belief.
He told The Birmingham Mail: "The important thing was to feel like a Premier League player – and I do feel more so now.
“I feel like I’ve learned and improved in this league."
Jones also insists he is not one to rest on his laurels, stating that he remains keen to improve and establish himself as a proven top-flight player.
"Fortunately for me now, I’ve played a good few Premier League games on the bounce," he said.
"I wouldn’t say established, but [I am] someone who’s keen to carry on improving in this league."
