West Ham United youngster Bondz N'Gala is delighted with his loan move to Plymouth Argyle.

N'Gala was in the squad for last night's victory over Bristol City.

"I am definitely excited at the prospect of playing football," he said on WHUTV. "Competitive games are what I need and hopefully I can go out and show what I am about. It is about getting a good run of games and testing myself.

"I need to see where I am at. It is a big opportunity to prove myself. It is a learning curve in my development and hopefully all will go well. It is a great challenge.

"I went down there for a week initially to train and I know what they are about. They are a good side and they don't deserve to be where they are in the league. There is still loads of time to get out of trouble. Hopefully I can help them do so."
