But he admits his big £35million pal still has unfinished business at Liverpool.
Nolan said: “Everyone at West Ham has really enjoyed working with Andy — and we all believe there is no better place for him to be than at our club.
“He’s in one of the best cities in the world. playing with lads who want to play with him.
“He was probably a bit harshly treated by Liverpool and I think he feels hard done by with all that’s happened there.
“I think most Liverpool fans were shocked by what happened to him in pre-season, after the way he came into his own with some of his performances towards the end of last season.
“But he still loves Liverpool and he has the hunger to prove to everyone there that he is good enough to play there.
“No one has spoken about what happens when his loan spell with us is up but everyone in our dressing-room will want Andy to stay beyond the end of this season.”
