New Chelsea signing Pedro has admitted he is yet to settle and find a new home in London.
The 28-year-old arrived at Stamford Bridge in the summer transfer window after completing a £22 million move from Spanish giants Barcelona.
The Spain international has already scored his first goal for the club, in their 3-2 win against West Brom, and laid on an assist in the 2-1 defeat against Crystal Palace before the international break.

However, despite the fact that life on the pitch is going well, off it the Spanish ace has already run into trouble, and is yet to buy a house in his new home city.
He also waxed lyrical about working under Jose Mourinho, having admitted some at his former club Barcelona will never forgive the Special One for his actions during a tempestuous spell in charge of Real Madrid between 2010 and 2013.
"The past is there and there are people who will not forgive what happened (between Mourinho and Barcelona)," he said. "But athletes have a different way of valuing things."
He added: "Mourinho has promised me that a coach cannot promise anything. It was a good talk, he explained the situation of his team, what he expected of me and I heard what I needed to hear, that with me the team would grow. It gave me confidence.
"And in addition the possibility of living in London was a privilege. Although I'm having a hard time finding a house. I hope next week I will have it resolved."
Chelsea will resume their Premier League defence after the international break with a trip to Goodison Park to take on Everton on Saturday. So far the Blues have managed just four points from their opening four games of the season, and are already eight points adrift of early pace-setters Manchester City.
