Catania's Japanese star Takayuki Morimoto is excited about his move to Novara.
Morimoto hopes to kick-start his Serie A career at the newly-promoted club.
â€śAfter the play-offs my agent told me there was interest from Novara and I was immediately intrigued, so we started talks,â€ť revealed Morimoto.
â€śOver the season I was able to see some Novara games. They push forward and run constantly. Theyâ€™re the kind of great attacking side I like!
â€śI already played alongside Simone Pesce and Riccardo Meggiorini at Catania, while I canâ€™t wait to meet my other new teammates.
â€śItâ€™s true I am accustomed to the hot weather in Sicily, but Iâ€™m certain I wonâ€™t have problems getting acclimatised to the north.
â€śIâ€™m told they can play great football on the artificial pitch at the Stadio Piola and I canâ€™t wait to try it out.â€ť
