Super Eagles of Nigeria winger, Victor Moses, is looking forward to adding his quality to West Ham United.
The 24-year-old was one of four deadline day signings made by the club, joining midfielder Alex Song, Croatia striker Nikica Jelavic and fellow winger Michail Antonio in moving to the Boleyn Ground, and one of 12 summer arrivals in total.
Moses spent his first day training alongside his new colleagues at Chadwell Heath on Wednesday and is already feeling part of things.
“I am very pleased and delighted to have come to West Ham on loan,” he told West Ham TV.
“It’s a great club and you can tell that by the history and by the fact I’ve played here a few times and the atmosphere is amazing.
“I want to add my quality to what West Ham already have and hopefully we can do much better this season than last season. I am very pleased to work under the new manager.
“The lads are working very well and I’ve seen them all and they’re great lads. I spoke to the manager he’s a great manager and I’m very pleased to be here working under him.”
Moses’ introduction has been made easier by the fact he has played with or against many of West Ham’s players in the league and international fixtures in recent years.
“Alex Song was here on loan last season and he’s a quality player with a huge amount of talent, and we all saw that last season. Nikica Jelavic is a great striker too, and score goals and it’s good to have that kind of quality of players coming into West Ham,” he said.
“We already know Andy Carroll is a great striker and he has lots of experience in the Premier League, as do Jelavic and the other strikers we’ve got here as well. If I can help them to score goals this season that will really help.
“For me personally, I just want to play as much as I can and enjoy my football – that’s the most important thing.”
The winger has arrived at the Boleyn Ground at a time the Hammers are celebrating an historic back-to-back Barclays Premier League victories at Arsenal and his former club Liverpool.
With a trip to Manchester City up next on the road, Moses is hoping the club can make it an unforgettable hat-trick of away wins to start the 2015/16 campaign.
“It’s not just been the way they have played that has impressed me, but it’s been the hard work as well,” he said.
“You can tell everyone is fighting for each other and it was a great result at Arsenal and then at Liverpool at the weekend.
“I love playing counter-attacking football and this club has definitely got it here and it will definitely suit my game. We’ve got a good quality of players up front and the wingers are quick, so if we can get it going on the counter-attack we can really be a threat as a team.
“I’m delighted to be here and I want to help the club finish as high up in the table as possible this season.”
