Nene thrilled with West Ham deal

Nene is delighted with his deal at West Ham United.

The Brazilian striker has signed for the Hammers to the end of the season.

Nene told the club's website: "I am very excited and happy to be here. I'm proud to come to a really big club like West Ham and I'm going to do my best to help the team.

"I've been thinking about coming back to Europe for a few months because here the football, the ambience, everything is better.

"It's a really good challenge for me, to come to a competition like the Premier League. It's the most competitive in the world so this is the motivation for me."

The much-travelled Nene, whose previous clubs also include Mallorca, Alaves, Celta Vigo and Monaco, was joint-top scorer in Ligue 1 after scoring 21 goals for PSG in the 2011-12 season.
