Thomas Hitzlsperger has expressed his delight with his move to West Ham United.
The former Lazio midfielder joined the Hammers this week on a Bosman transfer.
“It is destiny,” the ‘Hammer’ told whufc.com with a smile. “I knew that West Ham were called The Hammers and it has actually always been on my mind whether I would play for the club one day. I am really pleased to be a Hammer.
“It is nice and it suits perfectly to be at West Ham. Hopefully people will be talking about my nickname a lot because that will mean I will be doing my job and scoring some goals as well.”
