West Ham signing Areola: I was sad with what happened at Fulham

PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola is delighted to have joined West Ham.

The Paris-born stopper arrives in east London after a Player of the Year-winning campaign with Fulham and he is determined to demonstrate his unquestionable talent in a West Ham shirt.

The loan signing told the club's website: “I'm happy. For me it was the best opportunity to sign for this Club, to sign for West Ham and to try my best to help the team.

“London is a great place to live and to work as well, and obviously the Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world so I really enjoyed it last season. It was tough for me and for the team, but I enjoyed playing in the Premier League. We were without the fans, but this year we will have the fans back so I can't wait to see the atmosphere."

On Fulham, he added: “Yeah, I had a great year, but in football you have to think about the team as well, so on top of my performances the team was more important for me. So, I was sad about what happened with Fulham, but in my job I think I did a great job. I'm going to work hard and try to give my best."
