Pierre Ekwah Elimby is absolutely loving life at West Ham United after arriving from Chelsea in the summer.
The 19-year-old joined the Hammers on a free transfer having left Stamford Bridge.
And he has already been a huge hit at the London Stadium. So much so that Chelsea may well be wondering why on earth they let him go!
Ekwah Elimby didn’t put a foot wrong when representing the senior team during pre-season.
He has been a standout performer for the Hammers’ under-23 side as well.
Pierre Ekwah Elimby comments prove he was right to swap Chelsea for West Ham
It seems as though Hammers boss David Moyes has found a real star in the making.
The teenager spoke to WHUFC.com and shared just how much he is enjoying his time at West Ham:
“I literally love it here. It’s a family Club which I like, I was looking for that, so I literally love it. The coaches are great, everybody’s welcomed me with open arms, so I’m feeling great in the team and the Club which is brilliant. For me, it’s perfect.”
The young Frenchman has just been called up to represent his nation’s under-20 team – the first time that has happened for three years!
The 19-year-old is a hugely exciting prospect. His talent may well have gone to waste had he stayed with Chelsea without getting a look-in for their senior team.
And his comments on West Ham proves that he made the right decision swapping West London for East London in the summer.
