New Blackburn Rovers signing Dickson Etuhu stated that the decision was "a no-brainer".
The Nigerian midfielder signed a four-year deal at Ewood Park last week, joining fellow former Fulham midfielder Danny Murphy.
"This is exciting to me, coming to a big club like this in the Championship, there are some quality players so I thought it would be good to be part of that," he told the East Anglian Daily Times.
"I spoke to the manager, he told me his plans of how he wants to play and the direction he wants to take the club.
"Once I heard of the ambition that the club has it was a no-brainer for me."
