'He was certainly the right player at the right price, and this is a great deal for the football club.'

'It has been a bit of a culture shock for him coming over and seeing what English football is all about but he is a top quality player and he will adjust.
'The reports we've had on him from Argentina were all outstanding and he is a player who will bring something extra to our squad.'
