Zola lauds new West Ham signing Ilunga

West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola is delighted to have signed Herita Ilunga on a four year deal. The Congan left-back has been ever present in the Premier League since joining the Hammers on loan from Toulouse in a deal struck just before the summer transfer window closed.

The deal with Toulouse was completed on Wednesday and Zola said: "It is a very good thing for us. Herita has been incredible. He has been fantastic all season.

"For West Ham it is a great thing he has signed a long contract.

"We have been talking about this for a long time. It is very good he has committed to the club. He is a player that is going to give us a lot of satisfaction.

"He has never missed a game and the standard of his game has always been top. I can't remember one game when I wouldn't have given him top marks."
