Lucas Paqueta admits the chance to call London stadium home was a big influence on his decision to join West Ham United.
The Brazil midfielder left Lyon for the Irons last month.
He recalled to whufc.com: “After we played West Ham in the Europa League last season, we all said as players what a fantastic stadium it was and how great the fans were and what great energy there was in the place.
“That's definitely something that influenced my decision as well. Without a doubt, it's an incredible Club and something that I wanted to experience.
“It was really that desire that everybody at the Club showed in this amazing project they have and the fact they wanted to include me in that really cemented my decision.
“When I arrived here and saw how much confidence everybody and all the fans had in me and how happy they were to see me here, it just makes me want to reward them and pay that back each time I get on the pitch and just to commit myself and devote myself to this Club."
