After winning Sky's 'Football's Next Star', the tricky winger earned himself a dream deal at Serie A giants Inter Milan.
He was unable to make the breakthrough in Italy and has recently been rebuilding his career in the English non-league ranks.
Inverness have seen enough of him to offer him a short-term contract and Greenhalgh is determined to make the most of the opportunity.
He told the Sunday Mail: "Terry (Butcher) seems like a really good manager. Obviously if things aren't going well he'll let you know. But before, I'd only ever heard about the bad side of Terry Butcher.
"Then I was sitting in his office with him and realised what a nice bloke he is. The most interesting thing is the style of football he wants to play, which I didn't expect at all.
"I'll get exposure in Scotland. People have asked me why I'm going and the English see it as a League one or Two. But in the SPL, three teams can qualify for Europe. So if you think about that, it's better than the Championship.
"In Italy you get six or seven touches of the ball before a defender comes at you. There will be a big difference in Scotland. I'm ready for it. Hopefully at Inverness I can work between the Italian and British sides of the game."
