Maxwel Cornet: I can't wait to play for West Ham fans

Maxwel Cornet is delighted to be a West Ham United player.

The former Burnley winger signed for West Ham yesterday.

Cornet said, “It's a new step for me to join this big Club and I'm really happy to be here, to be part of the project for the Club. I'm just excited to start.

“It was important for me to grow up in France and discover how it is to play in a professional league before going to the next step.

“For me, English football is the next step because everyone knows the level here is very high and I want to play here for that. So I'm happy to be here now.

"Metz gave me a solid foundation, and gave me a platform from which I've been able to build my career with character and determination.

“It will be amazing. I played here, against West Ham last year, and I missed a penalty unfortunately. I can't wait to experience it as a West Ham player now – I'm very excited to start, meet the supporters and communicate with them."
