Simone Zaza admits he suffered during his loan stint at West Ham earlier this season.
The Italy striker, who failed to find the back of the net in eight league outings for the Hammers, has relaunched his career at Valencia.
The La Liga club snapped him up on loan in January before announcing earlier this week they have secured his services on a permanent basis.
Zaza is delighted to have committed his future to Valencia, even more so after his travails in London earlier this season.
“The renewal is very good news, I always thought about staying here,” he told Valencia’s official radio station. “Now it’s official. I am happy.
“Valencia were the team that wanted me the most. I knew the history of Valencia and when they said there was the possibility of coming here it made me very happy.
“I am not a phenomenon, nor the best in the world. What’s the most important thing is that the people know that I am going to give everything.
“Now more than at Juventus or at Sassuolo or at other teams because after the negative period at West Ham I suffered a lot and I will never forget it.”
