“I am a West Ham player now and I just want to enjoy my football and help us get the three points.
“The West Ham fans always stick with the players and it is amazing how they support you all the time. I am very pleased to he here and enjoying my football.
“Alan Pardew has been with West Ham before and he is now with Palace. He organises the team very well, but we are working hard in training to make sure we go there and get the three points.
