West Ham boss Alan Curbishley says the form and fitness of Craig Bellamy is like welcoming a new signing.
"Obviously he finished the season and got himself fit at the end of season so he has had a bit of a run at it and maybe he has a little bit longer than perhaps the others.
"It is great for us. It is just like a new signing coming back.
"Dean Ashton scored a couple the other day and now Craig Bellamy has come back and got a couple of goals so it is terrific for us."
