“My special thanks go to the manager, Mark Hughes, chief executive Tony Scholes and [technical director] Mark Cartwright for their work in helping to make this deal happen over the past few months.
“I sincerely appreciate it so much, and will give my utmost to pay them and the supporters back on the pitch over the coming months and years.
