West Ham central midfielder Tomas Soucek has been a hit ever since arriving one at London.

Initially signed on a short-term loan deal, the Czech Republic ace soon earned a permanent deal at the London Stadium and has gone from strength to strength ever since.

Despite arriving in the midst of a pandemic the 26-year-old has taken to life in a new country with aplomb – scoring 12 goals and registering one assist in 51 Hammers outings.

Unsurprisingly Soucek’s form has lead to purported interest from elsewhere, however, the dominant enforcer has told the club’s official website, as cited by West Ham News & Views on Twitter, he is more than happy with life in east London.

Soucek also spoke about training on Hackney Marshes during the first lockdown and named his favourite Irons moment thus far as a 3-2 win over Chelsea last season.


Music to West Ham fans’ ears I’m sure.

David Moyes has a real gem on his hands in Soucek, especially alongside Declan Rice.

Building a team around that midfield duo with some smart additions to the squad could see the Irons in strong stead for many years to come.

Perhaps the Czech star might’ve been better served not giving away his love for Hackney Marshes – given he is currently househunting in order to escape adoring fans.

Has Tomas Soucek Supassed Expectations?
