'Pure power' - West Ham captain Noble hails £12m signing

Hull City KC Stadium at night

West Ham midfielder Mark Noble has praised striker Enner Valencia.

Enner Valencia scored a tremendous goal on his West Ham debut, helping the Hammers secure a 2-2 away draw at Hull.

The Ecuadorian international's strike was described as a 'wondergoal' by opposition manager Steve Bruce after the game, and his teammate Mark Noble was also impressed, but not surprised.

He told SkySports after the game: "He does that in training all the time. He's got no backlift and pure power. I didn't even see it go in to be honest.

"Thats what he brings to us and him and Sakho today worked their socks off, I'm over the moon they've both got a goal, I hope it (the second) gets credited to Sakho.

"If they can continue that, they look like a good couple of buys."
