Oviedo was a man in demand this summer, and manager David Moyes had to fend off interest in a clutch of other clubs to win his signature, but the 22-year-old is thrilled to be on Merseyside and convinced he made the right choice.
"It was a dream to play here," he says. "As a young boy I wanted to come to England and play.
There were other clubs who were interested in me but it's not important now. I'm happy here and it was the best decision for me.
"The people at the club are very friendly. From my first day everyone was great with me.
"I'm feeling good and so grateful with the opportunity.
"The Danish league is a good league. Of course the English Premier League is a higher standard but it will just mean working harder and trying to get better over the next few months."
