West Ham United manager David Moyes has absolutely raved about new signing Thilo Kehrer…once again!

The 25-year-old joined the Hammers from Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month for around £13 million.

Kehrer has already endeared himself to the West Ham faithful. What a player he is.

The German made an inauspicious start to life at West Ham, after he gave a penalty away against Brighton during his Premier League debut.

The 25-year-old bounced back in fine style, however, with strong performances against Viborg and Aston Villa, Tottenham and Chelsea respectively.

Kehrer is already a fan favourite due to his passionate, swashbuckling displays. And Moyes is clearly a massive fan as well…

David Moyes raves about West Ham ace Thilo Kehrer

The Scot addressed the media after our bitterly disappointing defeat to Chelsea.

Despite his frustrations, he still found time to praise Kehrer to the hilt, as quoted by BBC Sport:

“Yeah, he’s been really good. I’ve been mentioning him quite a lot in my media that it’s not easy to come and settle in in the Premier League. Some players can hit the ground running, whereas others can take a bit of time. We needed him, we’ve got four defenders out and one who’s just coming back from a cruciate (injury) and we’re trying to nurse him through. We’ve been really short of defenders, and he’s done really well.”

Signing Kehrer for just £13 million seems to be a truly outstanding piece of business from West Ham.

His blistering recovery pace really enables our backline to push further up the pitch – something that the Hammers haven’t had in a very long time.

We certainly look a lot more mobile as a defensive unit since he moved to the London Stadium.

West Ham have got ourselves an absolute bargain with Thilo Kehrer.

Hopefully he maintains his fine form between now and the end of the season.
