Tom Carroll has given his first interview following the signing of a one-year deal with the Grecians.
Former Premier League star Carroll, who also played in Europe for Tottenham Hotspur, linked up with the club on trial last week and the 31-year-old put pen to paper on Thursday.
"I'm really happy to get it done. I had a bit of time out last year so it's great to be back and enjoying things again," Tom said.
"It's been a good week meeting the boys and having conversations with the manager. The style of play here really suits me and I really feel I can contribute.
"The club feels the right fit for me and I feel like there is a real alignment in how me and the manager see things, and in the two friendlies I've played in I've really enjoyed what he's trying to do.
"I just want to get back playing football. I want that buzz back."
