Mauro Zarate says he is ready to make an impact at Birmingham and he wants to stay in England.
The highly-rated Argentine striker joined The Blues in the January transfer window after moving from Qatar outfit Al-Sadd.
Zarate shocked many people last year when, as one of the most promising players in Argentina, he opted to move to the Middle East rather than Europe.
And Zarate admits he regrets moving to Qatar.
"I really don't know what I was thinking when I accepted to be transferred to Qatar," said Zarate - who is yet to start a Premier League game.
"I am very pleased to be at Birmingham because although the team is trying to avoid the relegation zone and that is not a happy situation, at least I am fighting for an objective.
"I am getting adapted to English football. I am waiting for the coach Alex McLeish to give me a chance to play a match from the first minute.
"He wants to include me slowly but the situation is difficult because the team is playing well.
"For the moment I have been given a few minutes so I try to take advantage of them all I can. When I get the chance to play from the first minute I hope to score several goals."
Zarate insists he is very happy with life in England and has no intention of returning to Qatar - as he is currently only on loan with a view to a permanent deal at St Andrews.
"I am much more comfortable in England than in Qatar," he continued.
"Besides that, English football is much rougher, I like this very much. Football is played here and all the grounds are great. I hope I can stay for a long time in England.
"My idea is not to return to Qatar. I want to play in a good league and this is one is the best. I hope that Birmingham extends my loan or buys my transfer. I am fine at Birmingham, the city is very nice."
