Carlos Tevez is excited about the prospect of helping Manchester City win some silverware after agreeing a five-year contract with Mark Hughes' side. The 25-year-old Argentina international will move to Eastlands after rejecting the chance to stay at Manchester United, where he had spent the last two seasons. Tevez is Hughes' third major signing of the summer following the arrivals of Gareth Barry and Roque Santa Cruz, and many other players including Emmanuel Adebayor and John Terry continue to be linked with the club. Tevez told the Daily Mail: "The manager and the owners are very ambitious and that became clear to me the first time we spoke. "This is the chance to be involved from the start, an opportunity to help build a special experience. I hope to win many more trophies with City. "There is a great feeling of excitement around the club. Look at the quality of the players who have been signed and the prospect of other top-quality players coming too. Things are happening at this club. "The owners made it clear to me that they will be doing everything in their power to make this an extraordinary club to play for. I look forward to being a part of that experience." Meanwhile, Hughes is delighted with his latest signing, saying: "It's terrific news. Carlos is an international player of the highest class who possesses all the attributes that will help drive this club forward. "He isn't only outstanding technically but is a reliable goal scorer and someone who will contribute fully to the team ethic. He gives us another exciting, attacking dimension."
