Belgian international Marvin Ogunjimi insists he never thought about moving to England once he knew he could seal a switch to Spain.
The Genk striker signed for Real Mallorca on transfer deadline day, but since then the move was not ratified by Fifa as the documents were signed too late.
Ogunjimi will still move to the Balearic Islands, but will now have to wait until January.
"I have always loved the Spanish league, so it a great feeling for me to be going to play there," he told skysports.com.
"I am looking forward to going there in the New Year."
Asked about the potential interest from Newcastle and Fulham, he replied: "I was not aware directly of their interest, it was through the newspapers, however I had already made my mind up about Spain, maybe one day I will play in the Premier League because it is also a top league."
