Winger Chris Burke has joined Cardiff City from Rangers on a two-and-a-half-year deal.
The 25-year-old has been hampered by injury problems in the past and has only just returned from a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Burke is eager to put his fitness problems firmly in the past and is keen to help the Bluebirds challenge for a place in the Premier League.
He told Rangers World: ""The Championship is a very difficult league and anybody can beat anybody. I'm sure it will be difficult to reach the Premiership but that's my aim, to play in the Premiership.
"I feel as though that's where they belong and that they are a Premiership club because they have come on in leaps and bounds over the years.
"They keep progressing and hopefully they can continue to do so.
"If you look at the standard down there, it's a good standard. You see some Championship teams in the cups doing well against the top Premiership teams.
"It will be difficult but I'm looking forward to it."
Burke admitted he felt the time was right to leave Ibrox and is relishing the opportunity to make a name for himself with the Welsh outfit.
"It's a new challenge for me," he said. "I loved my time at Rangers but I felt as though it wasn't progressing the way I wanted, I wasn't playing as much as I would have liked.
"Like any player, I want to be playing football and back enjoying it again. The only way you can do that is by playing matches and that wasn't happening at Rangers.
"The way forward is to move on and hopefully I can do that at Cardiff. I'm not saying I'm going to walk straight into the team - I'm going to have to fight for my place - and hopefully I can do well there.
"It's always disappointing with injuries but I'm back now, I'm fit and raring to go and I'm just looking forward to a new chapter in my life."
