West Ham United stars Arthur Masuaku, Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal have been reacting to the club’s signing of Alex Kral – as has the man himself.
West Ham completed the loan capture of Spartak Moscow midfielder Kral this evening (whufc.com).
In the announcement on the club’s official website, West Ham said the deal was ‘a season-long loan with a view to making the move permanent’.
West Ham boss David Moyes has been tracking Kral for some time.
And the Scot has made it clear he has every intention of making Kral’s move permanent providing the Czech proves himself like compatriots and now West Ham teammates Soucek and Coufal (whufc.com).
Kral’s signing follows the impressive West Ham captures of Nikola Vlasic, Kurt Zouma and Alphonse Areola.
And he has been welcomed into the West Ham family on social media already.
In response to his arrival Soucek and Coufal took to Twitter to claim some of the credit for their roles as “agents” in the move.
And Kral reacted, saying he didn’t realise he had so many agents!
Then Masuaku reacted saying: “Potato salad everyday” in reference to Soucek’s famous interview about his favourite Czech dish last season.
Kral’s new manager David Moyes has been reacting to the midfielder’s arrival too.
Speaking on the club’s official website, Moyes is confident Kral will prove himself at West Ham during a jam-packed season.
“I am delighted to welcome Alex to West Ham United,” Moyes told whufc.com.
“He will provide good competition in the centre of midfield. He is another young, talented player who we feel has a big potential and will be capable of adapting to the demands of the Premier League.
“We’ve brought him in on loan initially and, hopefully, over the course of the season he will make a valuable contribution, particularly with our busier schedule of fixtures.”
In other news, West Ham can still sign players after the 11pm deadline.
