Kurt Zouma has already become a key part of the West Ham squad.
The 26-year old defender moved to West Ham on a permanent deal in the summer window in order to play more first-team football on a regular basis.
He already has 270 minutes of action since his move across the capital.
The French international reveals his reason for joining David Moyes’ side.
“The integration? I get along well with everyone,” Zouma said. “Honestly, I’m someone who talks to everyone.”
“I needed to play more,” he said.
“Obviously I was in a team that was doing really well. Coming here has allowed me to compete more to play. It’s a club that wants to progress and grow. And I want to be part of this project.”
“What already seduced me is the club. I think it’s a good club that is making great progress,” Zouma added.
“They did an exceptional job last year to qualify for the Europa League. And there, we will have a difficult group, we can do something this year.
“The fact of having spoken with the manager, who helped me a lot and convinced me, who showed me that he wanted me. He thinks that I will bring more to the team, from my experience. I’ve been in England for a long time, and I’m in the France squad so it’s true that I can bring all my defensive and offensive quality.”
