Emanuel Pogatetz is excited about his move to West Ham United.

Pogatetz left Middlesbrough for German side Hannover before moving to Wolfsburg last summer, but has made just eight league starts for the Bundesliga outfit.

He said: "First of all when I heard that West Ham wanted me, I thought it was a club I wanted to play for because they are a very traditional club, with passionate supporters.

"Secondly, it was good for to have the opportunity to come back and play in England. This is the football I want to play and I have missed playing here, I want to show what I am still capable of after five years playing in Middlesbrough."
