Mark Noble has confirmed a signing and he’s looking forward to meeting West Ham fans ahead of his new Sporting Director role.

West Ham confirmed that Noble will return to the club as Sporting Director from January.

The legendary Hammers figure has been hugely missed off the pitch and in the West Ham dressing room this season.

But he will return to the club in an official capacity on January 2nd 2023 after bringing the curtain down on his career as a West Ham player back in May after 550 senior appearances across 18 years in a Claret and Blue shirt.

West Ham made it clear Noble will be heavily involved in key aspects of the club including transfers and recruitment.

It is fair to say the appointment of Noble to the newly created role has met with a largely positive reaction overall.

And the former skipper will be hoping for a similar reception from supporters soon.

Noble has confirmed a signing and he’s looking forward to meeting West Ham fans ahead of his Sporting Director role.

The fan favourite is releasing his autobiography ‘Mark Noble Boleyn Boy’ next week.

And he has taken to social media to confirm he will be doing a signing on Saturday November 12th at Waterstones in Lakeside.

“Looking forward to coming down and signing some copies of the book,” Noble said on Twitter.

“Make sure you register on the link to get involved.”

A synopsis for the West Ham legend’s autobiography reads: “Now, after over 20 years, with a wealth of memories and more than 500 appearances for his boyhood club under his belt, Mark finally looks back at his remarkable career, reflecting on his journey from boot boy to club captain, bossing the midfield, scoring pressure penalties and becoming an inspirational figurehead on and off the pitch.”

Given the length of time Noble has been at the club and the players and managers he has played with and against, it promises to be an absolutely fascinating read.
