After signing a season-long loan deal at Deepdale, Stephy Mavididi can't wait to get started for PNE.
The Arsenal forward put pen to paper on the deal the eve of the club's season opener, and the 19-year-old is raring to go.
Speaking to iFollow after joining the club on loan, Mavididi said: "I’m delighted to get it over the line, I’m happy to sign and now I’m ready to kick on for the new season.
"I can’t wait to get started and I can’t wait to meet the lads and crack on – let’s go and do good things this season."
The pacy forward is looking forward to showing the fans what he can do and explained what manager Alex Neil expects from him this season.
"He [the manager] just wants me to be myself and go out and do what I’ve been doing, so I’ve got to come in and play as well as I can and we can see what we can do.
"I’m quick, I like to get on the ball and commit a few defenders – and I like to score a few goals.
"I just want to put on that shirt and run out do well. I’m buzzing, I can’t wait to get started now.
Mavididi, who will take the No.27 shirt at Deepdale, is hoping his loan move with the club will let him gain valuable experience while helping the club be successful this season.
"You look to get inspiration from those lads, when you see them doing it you think ‘why can’t I do it?’ It’s good for us young lads to gain experience in the Championship and hopefully it could be stepping stone for something big. I just can’t wait to get started and see what the season brings.
"I went on loan in January and I really wanted to kick on but unfortunately I got injured so this is another opportunity to show people what I can do and I can’t wait to get started.
"I’m just looking to carry that on into the new season with my new team and I can’t wait to get started."
