Sone Aluko believes he has joined the right club at the right time.
The Nigerian international put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal with the Tigers earlier this week and made an impressive start to life at the club scoring the only goal in City's 1-0 over Oldham Athletic in a behind-closed-doors friendly on Monday.
Reflecting on his decision to return to English football after spending the last four seasons in Scotland, 23-year-old Aluko said:
"I’m very happy to be here. I know it has taken a while for everything go through but I always knew it was going to happen.
"Changing clubs is always a big decision and it wasn’t one that I took lightly but coming here was the best thing to do for my career.
"The biggest draw was the ambition of the club. I spoke to both the manager and the owner and they were very positive about wanting to get this club back into the Premier League as soon as possible.
"To put it simply, it was the right kind of challenge and exactly the one I was looking for."
Reports in the press have seen Aluko labelled as a forward but the man himself revealed he is happy to play anywhere for the sake of the team.
"I don’t really have a preferred position. I’ll play anywhere the manager asks me to whether it is in midfield, on the right wing, the left wing, as an attacking midfielder or up front.
"I’m pretty flexible to be honest. I am one of those players that just enjoys playing football.
"It doesn't matter where i am on the pitch, I just try to play to my strengths and the team’s strengths, hopefully helping the team achieve its goals in the process."
Aluko is expecting the Championship to be a tough challenge in 2012/13 but insists everyone at the club is aiming high for the forthcoming campaign.
"The Championship is very, very competitive," he added.
"There are a lot of big teams in the division this year so it’s going to be tough for any side to achieve success.
"However, there aren’t any clear favourites in the race for promotion so there is all to play for.
"We’re an ambitious team with ambitious players who want to play at the highest level and we’re all determined to help this club get back into the Premier League."
