New Stoke City signing Henri Camara has revealed he was persuaded to join the Potters due to the club's large Senegalese contingent.
Camara, 31, joined Tony Pulis' side on loan for the rest for the season from Wigan Athletic on transfer deadline day.
He has joined compatriots Abdoulaye Faye, Amady Faye, Ibrahima Sonko and Salif Diao at the Britannia Stadium.
"I'm delighted to be here," he told the club's official website.
"This is a good club with many good players and I believe we can achieve big things here.
"It was a similar situation when I joined Wigan and since the first season where we stayed up, they have now pushed on and become a very good side.
"It is great coming here and knowing so many of the players already. It makes things so much easier for me.
"I can't wait to get cracking and start scoring goals again because that is what I do best."
