The Scottish winger completed a £7m move from Norwich City last night, signing an initial three-year contract.
Snodgrass said: "I would love to say it just took one chat but it must have been about 10.
"I've spoken to the manager more than I've spoken to my wife over the last few days.
"That's exactly what you want. He's got fresh ideas for this season and he wanted me to be a part of that.
"The big thing for me was the way the club wanted me and pushed to get me through the door. That's hard to come by in football."
