Ryan Brunt says he wants to use his experience to help Plymouth Argyle after completing a move to Home Park.
Brunt on an 18-month deal on Tuesday.
The 21-year-old striker has made nearly 100 senior appearances during spells with Tranmere, Leyton Orient, Rovers, York City and Stevenage.
"There's not a lot of people my age that have had that experience and that many first-team games, so I think it does help," he told BBC Radio Devon.
"I've had a few loan deals and stuff like that, but at my age I think the most important thing is getting on the pitch and getting experience, whether that's a permanent deal or a loan deal."
Brunt has scored nine goals in 92 games as a professional, but has not hit the net since getting both of Bristol Rovers' goals in a 2-0 win over Port Vale in March 2013.
"I think the club is in a position where it's not meant to be and I want to help to get it back to where it should be," added the former Stoke City youngster.
"The mood in the club seems good, it seems that something's about to happen and that's a massive thing for me. That's why I decided to come here."
