Corry Evans insists he will hold no regrets after agreeing to leave Manchester United to join Hull City in the summer.
The 20-year-old opted to leave the Theatre of Dreams behind him after sealing a £500,000 permanent deal at the East Yorkshire club.
Safe in the knowledge he will play more first-team football under manager Tony Mowbray, the youngster fells the time is right to make the switch.
Despite committing to move down a league in the short term, Evans still holds out hope that the club can sneak into the play-off spots with a late charge.
"[The club] is definitely going places so there was never really any doubt that I wanted to come here," Evans told the Hull Daily Mail.
"I'm just looking forward to finishing this season as well as I can. If we start next season in the Premier League, what a move that would be.
"If not, we'll just keep building and pushing for promotion next season.
"The manager has been great. He's trying to build a young team here and it's a fantastic club to be at."
Evans joins other Manchester United academy products James Chester and Cameron Stewart in his move to the KC Stadium.
With an enviable line-up of promising future talent, Evans believes that the club are well-placed to return to the top-flight sooner rather than later.
"With the investment and the way the squad is building, it's looking in very good shape," he added.
"There's a lot of young lads here who want to prove themselves and make our names in football. That hunger is there in a lot of us.
"But we've also got a good blend of experience.
"There's plenty of players here who have been there and done it in the Premier League so it's definitely a club that's going forward."
