“I am very happy to be here.

“It was my coach at Manchester United Ricky Sbragia who first told me about the interest from Aberdeen, probably three or four weeks ago, but I have since heard that the club have been following my progress for a good while. They have kept an eye on me which is nice.

“I just felt coming to Aberdeen was the right decision to make.

“I have spoken to the manager on the phone. He is very positive. He told me a lot about his philosophy and plan for me going forward for the season.

“I chose Aberdeen because it is a massive club. Scottish football is also getting a lot of coverage, a lot of good coverage. I know a lot of the Aberdeen games are televised. All round I feel it is the right move for me. It is a new beginning for me really.

“When you have to make a decision like this I like to ask as many people as I can, and people I trust. I have been asking around a lot and no one had a bad word to say about the club. It is nice to get those opinions off other people and that helped me make my mind up.

“A few of my loan moves have not worked out as well as I would have hoped so this one is very important. It is a big year for me. I am hoping to get as many minutes under my belt as I can and hopefully get goals to help the team push forward.

“Without blowing my own trumpet, I do back myself and I am a confident lad. I would like to think that this will be a good move and will be a special year. Confidence is very important for a striker. If you can keep it high then everything else will follow.

“I just can’t wait to get started and I am looking forward to meeting all my new team mates this morning.”
