Here's an excerpt from our catch up with Cedric...

How are things going for you so far? - Alan Maloney

"Everything is going really well. We're in a good position in the table and we've been playing some good football, so everyone is happy."

Who's the best player you've played with so far? - Greg Pryce

"I didn't actually play in the team with him, but I trained a lot with him. N'Golo Kante is one of the best midfielders in the world and it was a pleasure to watch him train every day.

"He works really hard and he trains like he's playing in a game.

"I know him very well. We lived quite close to each other growing up in Paris and I lived with him when I was at Leicester City. I didn't have anywhere to stay at first, but he took me in for a month which was a very nice offer.

"It makes me very happy to see what he has achieved. He's a World Cup winner and he was named in the World XI recently, he really deserves everything he gets."

Have you ever played number 9? - Jeff Schofield

"I used to be a striker. I moved to playing on the wing, then into the centre of midfield and now I'm a centre back.

"I've still got a little bit of the number 9 about me, maybe one day you'll see it in the box."

Are you vocal or quiet in the dressing room? - Keith Bentham

"I'm pretty quiet in the changing room, I like to keep myself to myself."

Who was your inspiration growing up? - Ben Galbraith

"Mamadou Sakho. I was at PSG when he played there and I used to model myself on him."

What was it like growing up at PSG?

"I loved my time there. It was and still is a very good platform for young players in France and I learned a lot of things."

How many times do you work out in the gym... because you're an absolute beast? - David Askew

"Not a lot to be honest. All I do is core work, I don't actually lift a lot of weights. Chicken and rice is the key, I ate it all the time when I was younger."

Do you put pineapple on pizza? - Nathan Harvey

"No. No way."

What would be on your perfect pizza then?

"Chicken, chicken and chicken. I just love chicken."

When are you getting Chey Dunkley to dye his hair like yours? - Josh Hobson

"I told Chey to do it, but I think he's scared. He says he doesn't want to change anything because everything is going well, but I think he should do it."

Who would win in an arm wrestle... you or Chey?

"Me for sure."
