Mauro Zarate is delighted with his move to Birmingham and determined to keep his new club in the Premiership.
The 20-year-old told the Birmingham Mail: "I am very excited to be here. I wasn't happy in Qatar so when this chance appeared, I was willing to take it.
"The Premier League is the best league in the world and this team (Birmingham) is good and I think it can move forward.
"That appeals to me. Every game is going to be important. It is not a case of playing for nothing. My message to the supporters is that Birmingham will stay in the Premier League - and I will do everything I can to help.
"I am determined to do well for the next few months, then seek a permanent transfer and stay here for many years."
Zarate will be aiming to make a bigger impact than the last Argentinian player to play for the club in striker Luciano Figueroa.
He only lasted six months at Blues after a £2.5million move from Rosario Central five years ago.
He said: "I don't know what happened with Figueroa but I want it to work out for me at Birmingham.
"I am here to make my mark and make people remember me. I will give my best to make sure that happens."
