West Ham boss Allardyce not expecting instant Wellington impact

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce doesn't expect an instant impact from Wellington Paulista.

The Brazilian striker signed for the Hammers last week.

Allardyce told "I think he's a talented player in terms of his ability on the front line. Let's see if we can apply the talent into the team as quickly as possible. I don't know how quickly that's going to be, sooner rather than later hopefully, but it might take a little while. Talent is the most important thing and then applying that talent where it's most difficult in the Premier League and that's in the final third."
