"It's a big leap, a big step up for me, even from the Championship, but it's an opportunity I am going to try to grab with both hands.

"I think having confidence is massive. I genuinely feel I can make the step up, although I know that only time will tell.

"I am sure I will learn things about myself and my game, but I am here to improve as a player and a person.
"I am really looking forward to the opportunity. It's great to have been purchased by such a big club and a club I feel is very suited to me. I am just looking forward to getting going now.”
