New Wigan Athletic striker Victor Moses believes his £2.5 million move to the DW Stadium can pave the way for a full England call-up.
Moses, who has been capped at England Under-19 level, joined the Latics from Championship club Crystal Palace and signed a three-and-a-half-year deal on transfer deadline day.
The 19-year-old striker had been linked with high-profile moves to a number of top clubs - including Arsenal, Barcelona, Manchester City - but opted to join Wigan to get some playing time to make an impact in the Premier League.
Moses told the club's website: "There was a lot of speculation about me going to a number of clubs, but from the first day when I met with the gaffer (Roberto Martinez) and Brenda (Spencer, Wigan chief executive) they were very welcoming, made me feel very happy to be here and I just thought to myself, 'this is the right club for me'.
"There were a number of clubs interested but I'm very happy to have chosen Wigan Athletic ahead of them.
"I've played a lot of football in the Championship and now I'm being given the chance to prove myself in the Premier League. I know I'll have to step my game up and work a lot harder. I'm looking forward to every game and hopefully I can continue progressing as a player.
"Now that I'm in the Premier League hopefully I can prove to everyone that I am a good player, and hopefully in the future a call-up to the England senior team might be on the cards.
"But I just want to take things one step at a time and focus on playing for Wigan Athletic for the time being."
Moses - along with fellow deadline-day recruit Marcelo Moreno - is not eligible for Tuesday night's FA Cup fourth-round replay against Notts County, but could make his Wigan debut on Saturday at Sunderland.
