Jacob Butterfield has told reporters at a press conference this afternoon that he is feeling settled at Derby County now.
The central midfielder moved to the iPro Stadium from Huddersfield Town on the last day of the summer transfer window.
Butterfield admits that it took him some time to adapt to playing with the Rams, but he says he is growing into his role.

Butterfield was thrown straight in at the deep end upon his move to Derby, with Paul Clement putting him into his side’s starting line-up immediately.
It took a fair while for Butterfield to show his top form, but his recent performances have been very impressive.
The 25-year-old has scored three goals in his last seven matches, and he appears to have a big role to play, as Derby aim for promotion.
Clement’s men are currently in second place in the Championship table, and they face a hugely important match on Saturday.
Derby take on top of the table Middlesbrough next, and they can leapfrog Aitor Karanka’s side if they are victorious at the Riverside Stadium.
