Mark Noble delighted with West Ham summer transfer business

The midfielder is delighted that the club have been able to secure Alex Song from Barcelona again.

Speaking to talkSPORT, West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble believes the club needed the signings they have brought in this summer.

New manager Slaven Bilic has been busy reshaping the Hammers squad during the recent transfer window, bringing in a whole host of fresh faces to bolster and improve his ranks.

He was also busy on deadline day as he completed moves for Nikica Jelavic, Alex Song and Michail Antonio to further increase his options as the Hammers look to improve on last season's 12th placed finish.

And Noble believes they needed reinforcements, praising joint chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold, as well as vice-chairman Karren Brady, for recruiting quality players.

"I think we needed the signings. If you look at our bench we had four kids at Anfield who don’t have much Premier League experience," he told talkSPORT

"In all fairness to the joint-chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold and vice-chairman Karren Brady, they’ve brought in some quality players. You can see from everyone’s reaction how happy everyone is."

Delighted with Song capture 

The midfielder is also delighted that the club have re-signed Alex Song on loan from Barcelona.

The midfielder joined the club on loan from the Catalans last summer, and enjoyed fine season under Sam Allardyce as he became a firm fan favourite thanks to his impressive performances.

And Noble believes the late addition to the squad will definitely bolster their current squad once again, expecting him to fit in just as well as he did in the last campaign.

"Of course, Alex is a great player and we’re delighted he’s back,” he added.

“I’m sure he’ll fit in just as well as he did last year, he’s knows most of the boys and the set up here. His addition will definitely bolster the squad we’ve already got."
