Premier League side West Ham United will have a new home next season.

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has revealed on the club’s official website what he has told his players regarding the move to the new stadium next year.

The London outfit will leave the Boleyn Ground at the end of the 2015-16 season for the Olympic Stadium.

“The players are talking about it and they asked me about the new stadium,” Bilic told West Ham’s official website.

“I said it's a big step up for the club, it shows the ambition of the chairmen and the board and they are trying to make a club that is already a huge, massive club even bigger. This shows their ambition and I think we're going the right way.”

West Ham are a big club in London and have lofty ambitions for the future.

The Hammers are having a great season at the moment and appear to be in the running for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

The London outfit are sixth in the league table at the moment with 21 points from 12 matches, just three points behind fourth-place Manchester United.

West Ham will take on London rivals Tottenham Hotspur away from home at White Hart Lane in the Premier League after the two-week international break.

Could the Hammers finish in the top four of the Premier League this campaign?
