Diego Tristan cannot wait to start playing again following his move to Real Mallorca after being released by Deportivo La Coruna.
The 30-year-old striker was wanted by Bolton Wanderers, but he was keen to remain in Spain and has opted to pen a new one-year deal with the Balearic Island club.
"My goal now is to work hard and I have come to Mallorca with a huge desire to do well," he said.
"I have achieved what I wanted, which was to stay in the Spanish league, and the club knows what I have been through to secure the move.
"I want to rediscover the same form as before and do everything I can to help the team.
"There are some very good players here and I will train hard to earn a place in the side. I believe in what is being done at Mallorca and we can aspire to great things.
"I did not have to prove anything to anyone. I am just going to show the coach that I am worth my place."
Tristan joined Mallorca in 1998 from Real Betis and after a season in the B side was promoted by Hector Cuper to the first team.
His record of 18 goals in 35 league appearances saw the Son Moix-based club accept an offer from Deportivo and he went on to become a hero at the Riazor.
Following the departure of Javier Irureta as coach last summer, Tristan fell out with his replacement, Joaquin Caparros, and became a target of abuse from the fans.
Towards the end of last term, Tristan handed in a transfer request but Depor were unable to attract suitors to match their high asking price.
After failing to receive a fee, the Galician outfit agreed to terminate Tristan's contract after a tortuous period of waiting.
