The West Ham-bound defender still expects the tears to be flowing when he severs an eight-year tie with Accies.
"I won't lie, there might be a tear or two as I am quite an emotional person," said the highly-rated 20-year-old to the Daily Mail.
"It's going to be a really emotional day for me. I've been with Accies since I was 12.
"But I can't wait to get down to West Ham and see what I can do,' added the youngster who signed a pre-contract in January after the two clubs agreed a £1million compensation package.
"The quicker I start, the better. I will work hard down there and see what happens."
