"In all the big clubs there is competition, I accept that. I
just want to play as many matches as possible and I am
looking forward to that. I will be the happiest man in

move would never happen but I am so pleased it has. Old
Trafford is a lucky ground for me. It's where I started in
the Premiership and scored two goals. Fulham was a fantastic
place for me but I cannot wait for the challenge of proving
myself at the biggest club in the world."
