Håvard Nordtveit appears to be making a positive initial impression at West Ham United.

The central-midfielder has joined the London side from Borussia Monchengladbach this summer, and his performances have caught the eye already.

Nordtveit was particularly impressive during West Ham’s 3-0 friendly victory against Karlsruher yesterday.

The Hammers scored goals through Andy Carroll, Sofiane Feghouli and Ashley Fletcher, but Nordtveit’s display did not go unnoticed.

The 26-year-old was excellent in midfield, with his distribution earning him particular credit from Hammers fans on social media site Twitter.

Nordtveit is one of a number of new faces to join West Ham this summer, with Slaven Bilic bringing further quality to the Olympic Stadium.

The Norwegian international was captain of Gladbach last term, and he is expected to have an important role to play for Bilic’s side next season.

West Ham are currently on tour of Austria, as they sharpen up ahead of the start of the competitive season.
