Davide Di Michele is enjoying his extended first team run at West Ham United.

"Life at West Ham is great and I'm really enjoying it," Di Michele said.

"Being in the team over the last few weeks has really helped my form. You can express yourself and get the match fitness that you need. When I wasn't in the team I understood and was just waiting for my chance. As soon as the chance came I did well to take it and it was important for me to do that."

Di Michele is midway through a season long loan from Torino and the Italian is so settled he would extend his stay in London immediately if given the chance.

He told whufc.com: "I need to do the best I can and then at the end of the season we will see."
