The left-back has been in good form for West Ham once again this season.

West Ham United are closing the door on a footballing landmark next summer, as they move out of their Boleyn Ground home to move into the Olympic Stadium from the 2016-17 season onward.

It is a move that has been highly contentious, difficult to put through and emotional for many West Ham fans who do not wish to say goodbye to their beloved Upton Park.

But the move is now set in stone and West Ham's ambition will see them playing at the massive complex from next season.

One man who is looking forward to playing there is current West Ham left-back Aaron Cresswell.

He went on a tour of the ground yesterday and was clearly impressed, tweeting:

Cresswell, like the new stadium, is very much a part of the future at West Ham.

The 25-year-old left-back, who joined The Hammers in 2014 from Ipswich Town, will be looking to continue his magnificent progress in the West Ham first-team with the ultimate goal success on the domestic stage and recognition internationally.

Hopefully a bigger stage can do his talents justice.
