West Ham Star: Moses A Defender’s Nightmare

West Ham United defender James Tomkins is delighted to link up with his former England team-mate Victor Moses, who he has described as a nightmare to opposing defences.

Tomkins has fond memories of playing alongside the talented winger for the England U-21 side and has remained good friends with the Nigeria star.

“I know Victor Moses well fairly well from our time playing together for England,” Tomkins told the West Ham website.

“He was brilliant for Stoke last season and is a nightmare to mark. The lads have already seen that in training. He can be a match winner on his day and I will try and help him settle in as I know him well.

“He is a similar age to me and he wants to play games. He is playing for a massive club like Chelsea and they have offered him a new deal which shows what they think of him.

“But for him to come here and play first-team football is something he is seeking to do.

“I think it is good business for the club and we have strengthened areas of the squad that we needed to and it was great recruitment.”

Moses has completed a season-long loan move to ‘The Hammers’ from Chelsea and hopes to establish a regular first-team place at the Boleyn Ground.
