Lee Trundle showed his delight after completing a loan move back to Swansea City, a club he says he loves.
The striker enjoyed a fantastic four seasons at the club before deciding to make the step up to Championship level in 2007 when he joined Bristol City in a move worth £1m to the Swans.
The scouser failed to make an impression though at Ashton Gate and struggled to earn himself a regular place in the starting line-up.
He had a rather forgetful loan spell with Leeds United last season where he was only able to find the net once, and that was from the penalty spot.
The 32 year-old was delighted to be back in South Wales though and the moves comes as a big surprise to everyone.
Swansea City fans have mixed opinions on the transfer, some are looking forward to his return while some have doubts over his fitness and ability.
Trundle told BBC Sport:
'I can't wait to get back,'
'Bristol City were in the Championship [Swansea were still in League One in 2007] and I thought it was the right time to move but in football things change.
'Either they don't play your type of game or you don't fit in in within a certain squad and you've got to get on with it because it happens to the best players in the world sometimes.
'Hopefully I can kick-start myself again at the club I love.'
Trundle will also be joined by new record-signing striker Craig Beattie, and he added:
"I've played against him a few times.
He's a good player and a good goal-scorer so he will be a great asset to the squad.
"Hopefully he can come in and score the goals and get Swansea up the table."
Here's a reminder of some of his best moments and why he was such a fans favourite at Swansea City.
