David Gold claims Slaven Bilic is excited about West Ham's move to the Olympic Stadium.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has told the club's official website that Slaven Bilic is excited about the imminent move to the Olympic Stadium.

The Hammers have enjoyed a superb start to the season having appointed Bilic - a former West Ham defender - as their new manager over the summer.

With victories over Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City already this term, West Ham have proven that they can beat the so-called 'big boys' on their day.

Much of that is down to the work of Croatian boss Bilic and his summer signings, as West Ham look to end their stay at Upton Park on a high.

The Hammers will end their 112-year stay at Upton Park next summer, with a move to the Olympic Stadium on the horizon with West Ham looking to progress on and off the pitch.

Fans are torn over the move given the memories at Upton Park over the years, but it seems that manager Bilic is looking forward to it.

West Ham co-chairman David Gold has told the club's official website that Bilic is getting 'even more excited' about managing at the Olympic Stadium, having visited the ground recently.

"I know that Slaven went back to see the new Stadium last week and he is getting even more excited about the impending move to our new home," said Gold.

With greater facilities and impressive results on the field, West Ham could certainly become one of the top forces in English football - hence Bilic's excitement.
