Victor Moses is confident his best years are still to come and he hopes to help Chelsea win more trophies after completing a move from Wigan Athletic.
Moses has been a target for the Blues for much of the summer but his future has only just been sorted out after the clubs agreed a fee of around £9million last week.
By the time the transfer had been finalised it was too late for Moses to make his debut against Newcastle United on Saturday, but he is just pleased the speculation has come to an end.
Speaking to his new club's official website, Moses said: "When I first heard that Chelsea had come in for me I was surprised, but I had a call from my agent saying they were really interested in me and what did I think.
"I said they are the European champions and anyone would like to play there and now that everything is sorted, I am delighted to be here.
"I am happy to come back to London as I grew up here and it is a great honour to play for the club that won the Champions League."
The 21-year-old faces competition for a place in the Chelsea side but he is relishing the chance to be a part of such a talented squad and hopes his versatility will stand him in good stead.
"There are a lot of world-class players here and I am here to do my best for the team and to help them win more trophies," he explained.
"The club has done well for the past few years, they have achieved a lot, and for me to be able to play with these world-class players, I am delighted to be here.
"I went to Wigan to play left wing mainly but then the manager saw the way I was playing and he mostly used me on the right. Last season I played more on the right but sometimes on the left.
"I can also play up front or behind the striker, I can play anywhere up front. I'm comfortable wherever the manager wants to play me."
More to come
Roberto Di Matteo has praised Moses' dribbling ability and the former Crystal Palace youngster plans to keep playing in the same way.
He said: "That is one of my strengths, I love getting the ball and going past defenders. You don't want defenders tackling you all the time when you get the ball, you need to make them work hard, and that is what I love doing.
"I just want to say to the fans to sit tight, there is more to come from Victor Moses and I hope to do my best for the club and that there are more trophies to come in the future."
