Jack Sullivan can't hide his excitement over the squad West Ham are building

Jack Sullivan, the son of West Ham United co-owner David, has taken to Twitter to reveal his excitement about the future.

The sixth-placed Hammers are flying high this season and have impressed fans and pundits alike by mounting a serious challenge for the Champions League places.

Slaven Bilic has reinvigorated the East Londoners and with stars such as Dimitri Payet and Manuel Lanzini, the Hammers are playing the 'West Ham way' once more.

The club narrowly missed out on a trip to Wembley after being held by a late goal against Manchester United at Old Trafford before losing 2-1 in the replay at Upton Park earlier this month.

A 3-1 win over Watford last time out kept the Hammers on course for European football next season, a quest they continue at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Best Ham

The Irons are enjoying one of their best ever Premier League seasons with what is widely regarded as the best squad at the club since the 1980s.

And Jack Sullivan could not hide his excitement about what the future holds with an excitable post on social networking site Twitter.

"What a squad we are putting together!" Sullivan said.

"Not only in the transfer market, but with the academy too! Things are look(ing) bright."

The future's bright, the future's claret and blue

The Hammers are being linked with top class stars like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Michy Batshuayi and Alexandre Lacazette as they bid to bring in marquee signings as they move to the 60,000 seater Olympic Stadium this summer.

But the club have also been busy bolstering their youth ranks with some of the top talent from around Europe too.

Prodigal young Norwegian star Martin Samuelsen was signed from Manchester City last summer and has been earning rave reviews with his performances on loan at Peterborough United and for West Ham's development side.

And in the last week the club has also lured teenage striker Toni Martinez from Valencia and 16-year-old Portuguese midfield star Domingos Quina from London rivals Chelsea.

The Hammers are showing Olympic ambition and Sullivan is right to be excited.
