James Vaughan hopes his move to newly-promoted Norwich will act as a springboard for his career.
Vaughan became the Premier League's youngest goalscorer when he scored on his Everton debut aged 16 in April 2005.
But a string of injuries have hindered his progress, denying him the chance to establish himself as an important part of Everton's first-team squad.
The 22-year-old has had loan spells with Championship sides Derby, Leicester and Crystal Palace over the last two seasons.
But he has high hopes for the future after last week joining Norwich on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around £2.5million.
"I've been unfortunate with injuries but I'm hoping that all that's behind me now and I'm looking to push on with the rest of my career," he told Sky Sports.
"It's a great club and I'm looking forward to setting some foundations down here, hopefully getting myself into the team and doing well for the club.
"You don't get promoted two years in a row without having good players in the squad so I know that it'll be a battle.
"But I'm going to be doing everything I can week-in, week-out to try to get in the team."
Norwich finished second in the Championship to make it back-to-back promotions and return to the Premier League for the first time since 2005.
Vaughan faces stiff competition given Grant Holt scored 23 goals while Simeon Jackson finished with 13.
Manager Paul Lambert has therefore warned City fans not to expect too much from Vaughan but believes he will be a valuable asset next season.
"He's a handful and he's 22, which I think is a really good age," Lambert added.
"He's had a lot of experience in the Premier League before with Everton - he made his debut at 16 - so he knows exactly what it's like.
"He's only a young lad so people shouldn't get too carried away that he's the finished article, but hopefully he'll provide the hunger and desire that I'm looking for."
