Dundee United new boy Rakish Bingham has declared himself ready to help with the Premiership promotion push.
The English striker, who joined the Tangerines on Thursday after his contract with Doncaster Rovers ended, believes he is good to go when United play their next match away to Alloa next Friday night.
Bingham (26), who has signed on until the end of the season, also feels his time at Hamilton Accies means Scottish football won’t throw any surprises his way.
He said: “Dundee United have always been a big club that should be in the Premiership and it’s great for me to be part of a project that hopefully achieves that.
“I want to contribute with goals and assists as much as possible, really, to get the team there.
“It is good that I have been in Scotland before with Hamilton, albeit under different circumstances.
“I know what to expect.
“I am coming into a winning environment and I will do all I can to push us back up.
“I have my own personal targets but the main thing will be helping the team as a whole.
“I aim to hit the ground running, providing everything goes well. I like to think I am pretty quick and direct. I also have a bit of skill as well.
“Everyone has been welcoming, from the staff to the players, and to be part of this is a good feeling.”
Bingham revealed he was taken aback by how quickly United sporting director Tony Asghar managed to conclude the deal.
He said: “There was interest from United earlier in the week and everything happened pretty quickly.
“It feels a bit surreal because it happened so fast.
“I had a little chat with Tony and since then I’ve just been keen to get it all done and sorted.”
