Luis Boa Morte became Chesterfield's sixth permanent signing of the season when he penned a deal until the end of January 2013.
The former Arsenal, Fulham and West Ham man joins the Spireites on a free transfer after spending the last two months training the Fulham's first-team.
Speaking to Spireites Player after completing his move, Luis revealed that the move came about after talking to former team-mate and Chesterfield caretaker assistant-manager Mark Crossley.
He said: "It was just a brief chat with Mark Crossley and we took it from there.
"For me it's good because I was training [with Fulham], I had a chat with a few clubs but didn't agree anything so it was good to get this sorted and now I am looking forward to moving on.
"He [Mark Crossley] said it's a nice club, a well set-up club.
"It has good facilities. So that was a good thing as well to come over and join and as I've seen it's a nice stadium, so far so good."
The 35-year-old took part in his first training session with the Spireites this morning and the forward expressed his delight in getting back into the thick of first-team action.
"I'm just going to take it day-by-day. It's difficult to say how far I am from full fitness but I am looking forward to just keep doing what I was doing, training, and making myself available to play," Boa Morte told Spireites Player.
"I've just met the lads, I got a good welcome and I'm just looking forward get back training and to start playing as well.
"I hope so [be involved against Dagenham on Saturday]. I've got a session today and a session tomorrow so the manager will be the one to decide but I will definitely give it my best shot."
