West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is proud of their deal for goalkeeper Adrian.

The Spaniard went four games without conceding earlier this season and Allardyce insists the free transfer signing from Real Betis has been one of the bargains of the season.

He said: "You pay of tens of millions for a centre forward to score goals but in this case we paid nothing for someone to stop goals going in, and he's the second most important person in our team.

"It's a vitally important position. Over a season, good keepers earn you nine to 12 points, and he's been consistently good since he got in."
