Coventry City striker Chris Birchall is keen to take his new club back to The Premiership.
The Trinidad & Tobago international made the £300,000 move to the Sky Blues from League One club Port Vale back in August.
The jump to The Championship with Micky Adams's side came after Birchall helped his adopted country to this summer's World Cup finals, where The Soca Warriors put in some very creditable performances in Germany.
The 22-year-old's experience of football's showpiece event has given him a hunger to play at the highest level, and he hopes that can happen with Coventry in the near future.
"The World Cup gave me a taste of what it's like playing against the best in the world at the highest level," Birchall told The Sun's 'Super Goals' section.
"It was a real honour to play against the likes of (Steven) Gerrard and (Frank) Lampard. But now I've experienced it, I want to do it every week.
"I knew I could make the step up from League One and I think I could play in The Premiership in time.
"We've got a great stadium, great facilities and a great squad. This club has big potential and can go all the way."
