Colombian midfielder Aviles Hurtado said he expected to win with Pachuca and would "give everything I have for the team," whose line-up he will help bolster for Mexican soccer's Clausura 2013 tournament.
Hurtado, known as "El Minero," underwent a medical exam, signed a four-year contract and practiced on Monday.
"We did some important work at Atletico Nacional and we've come to Pachuca to break it," the player told TDW radio.
Hurtado, who is being joined by countryman Christian Marrugo in Pachuca's line-up for the upcoming tournament, played for Colombia's Atletico Nacional from 2011 to 2012, America de Cali from 2009 to 2011 and Depor Aguablanca from 2008 to 2009.
Hurtado noted the fact that several Colombians, including the late Miguel Calero, who was a goalkeeper, defender Aquivaldo Mosquera and midfielder Andres Chitiva, have played for Pachuca.
"The Colombians who have come here have done very well and we expect to not be the exception," Hurtado said.
The 25-year-old Hurtado, who described himself as a quick, fast and aggressive player, thanked Pachuca for signing him. EFE
