Leeds United's new signing Adam Drury has admitted he rejected offers from abroad to move to Elland Road.
Drury ended his 11-year spell with Norwich, where he had been the club's longest-serving player, to join Neil Warnock's side on a two-year deal on Tuesday.
And the left-back, who was offered a deal by former Canaries boss Paul Lambert before he took the reins at Aston Villa, revealed Leeds was the only option.
"Leeds United is a great opportunity for me," said the 33-year-old.
"I had offers to go abroad or to other clubs, but Leeds was the stand-out choice. I had other options, but the challenge of going to Leeds really appealed to me.
"My medical was on Tuesday morning, and it was weird really, because I haven't had a medical for 11 years, so I was thinking 'What actually happens in these things?'
"It was a similar sort of feeling I had to when I joined Norwich in 2001 - feelings of excitement at a fresh start."
Drury becomes Warnock's second recruit of the summer after Jason Pearce.
