West Ham United have provided an update on the progress of their new London stadium by uploading a series of photos to the club's official Twitter page.

The Hammers are preparing to take on Slovenian club Domzale on Thursday in the return leg of their Europe League third round qualifying tie, before they host Juventus in a friendly on Sunday, and the stadium finally looks to be taking shape.

The stadium has certainly come a long way since the start of the summer, with the ground beginning to resemble the feel of a football arena, as the famous claret and blue colours of West Ham adorn the seats.

Aside from their disappointing failure to recruit a world-class goalscorer thus far this summer, these are exciting times for West Ham fans and the move to their new stadium should enable them to compete with the big boys of European football on a long-term basis.

The excitement surrounding the stadium move has led to heightened expectations from the fans for the upcoming campaign, and they will be hoping that their side's on-pitch performances can match the fine work being done off it in getting the magnificent London stadium ready for the 2016/17 season.
