Sean Raggett is eager to get stuck into life as a Norwich City player following his summer move from Lincoln City.
The defender has just spent his first week training with Daniel Farke's squad, having recently completed an agreed loan spell with his former club.
Speaking exclusively to canaries.co.uk, Raggett said: "It's been really good.
"The vibe in the group is positive and things are on the up. The manager, the coaches and the boys have all been great in making me feel welcome.
"I'm just looking forward to getting stuck in now."
Raggett's move to the second tier represents the continuation of an upwardly mobile career for a player who was released by Gillingham as a teenager.
"I spent quite a few years in non-league football, playing part-time at Dover," he explained.
"After that I went to Lincoln, where I had a great year. Off the back of that I managed to get this move to Norwich which I'm delighted with.
"Players like Jamie Vardy are a big inspiration. There's been a lot of hype around non-league players since his rise.
"You see a lot of stories about non-league players getting picked up by bigger players and doing well. Hopefully that's something I can do."
One of the most telling features of Raggett's time at Sincil Bank was his strong relationship with the club's supporters, something he wants to replicate at Carrow Road.
"I was only at Lincoln for a season, then half a season on loan, but if felt like a long time," the 23-year-old added.
"We achieved a lot while I was there. It was a big year for the club.
"I've got a lot of love for the fans there because they gave me so much support. If I could get a similar support from the Norwich fans that would be brilliant.
"I'm a front-foot defender who likes defending, but at the same time I look to score a few goals. I'd like to add that here as well."
