New Tottenham signing Louis Saha has claimed he has joined "the most dynamic and exciting team in the country" after his surprise deadline-day move.
The French striker moved to White Hart Lane on a free transfer from Everton.
"I am not going to step down. I have a big challenge ahead, which is why I felt it was right to go," said Saha.
He trained with his new team-mates for the first time on Wednesday and could make his Spurs debut against Liverpool in the Premier League on Monday.
Saha signed an 18-month deal with Harry Redknapp's side late on Tuesday after a three-year spell at Goodison Park which brought him 35 goals in 115 appearances.
And the French international thanked the Toffees for helping him to salvage his career after an injury-ravaged spell at Manchester United.
Saha said: "I have to say thank you to Everton and particularly [manager] David Moyes because they helped me when I really needed it and I will never forget that.
"Leaving a great club like Everton is always a bit sad, but things come to an end, and I also want to say thanks to the supporters as there have been good times and bad times but I have always felt supported and loved.
"Playing with those players, with all our spirit, was a pleasure. Everton is a family club. There is a great spirit and it always felt like home. It is a very honest place and people are always straight with you."
