"You always associate this club with the Premier League and that's where I want to play my football," Albion new-boy Kieran Gibbs told WBA TV.
After joining the Baggies on a four-year deal from Arsenal, the defender said that The Hawthorns - and the top-flight of English football - was the 'best' place for him to come and ply his trade.
"There's always a decision to make but I went with my gut feeling.
"You hear speculation and stories but when it comes down to it you go with what you think is best.
"I spoke to the manager and he convinced me. I thought this move suited me best."
And despite having ten England caps to his name, Kieran's main focus is to get as much time on the pitch as possible this season.
"At the moment my priority is to just play," he said.
"To get that week-in, week-out feeling is my main hunger and my next objective.
"If I've learned anything over the last year or two it's to not think about anything other than the next day.
"I'm sure everything will take care of itself after that."
