West Ham’s transfer window praised by England legend

World Cup winner Sir Geoff Hurst has praised former club West Ham for their transfer activity this summer, reports the Evening Standard.

The 1966 hat-trick hero is delighted with the recruitment policy in play for his former side, hailing it as ‘very positive.’

The Hammers signed Dimitri Payet from Marseille early on in the window, and the player has received plaudits for his Premier League performances so far.

The 28-year old Frenchman dazzled fans on the opening day with a starring win away at Arsenal, and the good feeling has not stopped there in East London.

In a hectic closing 24 hours of the window, Barcelona midfielder Alex Song re-joined the club on loan, along with the signings of Victor Moses, Nikica Jelavic and Michail Antonio.

Hurst believes the deal for Song is ‘a good move’ and 73-year old waxed lyrical about the other new arrivals.

‘Jelavic is a good player’, stated the England legend, who sees the Croatian as ‘natural goal scorer’.

Chelsea’s Nigerian winger Moses arrived on a season-long loan after signing a new deal at Stamford Bridge, and the Upton Park icon believes the 24-year old possess ‘great potential.’

The Hammers will move into the Olympic Stadium next year, leaving the Boleyn Ground after 111 years.
