West Ham United defender James Collins is delighted with their early transfer business.

New signing Joe Cole made an immediate impact against Manchester United and 'Ginge' has backed loanee Marouane Chamakh to follow suit, possibly in the Hammers' next game - away at Sunderland next Saturday.

He told whufc.com: "Chadwell Heath is getting busier. Chamakh has been at Arsenal and Bordeux before, where he's done well. If he can come here and we can get the best out of him that's a plus and with Joe's performance against United to look at we're only going to get better. It's great to have bodies about as we had a couple of injuries a few weeks ago and it didn't seem like we'd have anyone about so it's great."
