Jay-Jay Okocha, who destroyed Premier League defences for the best part of four years, believes playing in the Coca-Cola Championship will be a breeze.

The former Bolton and Nigeria captain, 34, has returned to England to join ambitious Hull on an initial 10-month deal with a view to a further 12 months, and he insists he is ripe for an Indian summer with the Tigers.

"It is a very physical league but if I can play in the Premiership then I won´t have any problems playing in the Championship," said Okocha, who won 73 Nigeria caps and is already being hailed as Hull´s greatest-ever signing.
