Zola: I believe in West Ham youth policy

West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola insists he will maintain the club's youth policy.

"I believe every club should have a strong youth foundation, and that was one of my main aspirations when I came here," he said.

"I believe very strongly there should always be the possibility of allowing young players to come through to the first team.

"I know there are some good young players here and that the academy has produced many top players over the years.

"It is one of my dreams to give our young players the chance to play in our first team and become wonderful players for this club.

"It is part of the project I have taken on here as manager."
