West Ham boss Allardyce eager to bed down new arrivals

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is eager to bed down his summer signings.

Matt Jarvis missed Saturday's win over Fulham.

"It was a shame Matt Jarvis was out with a slight thigh injury, although we don't think will be a problem after this international break," Allardyce told

"We've also got Alou Diarra, who is a top-quality France international and we've got Modibo Maiga, who was a top scorer in France and could have a real influence on our squad this year.

"We've got a nice blend of talent and experience there that will be important to us. There are a lot of people that want to prove they are still Premier League players."
