Academy graduate Ben Johnson is eager for the new season and says West Ham are now raring to go.

It’s been an impressive 2 years, with the club challenging at the right end of the table whilst making a mark on the European circuit.

Now West Ham are heading into arguably one of the most competitive seasons with many sides significantly strengthening.

David Moyes’ Irons are very much doing the same, and Johnson echoed many connected with the club with the eagerness to get going.

“It’s obviously a great feeling to be back around the lads and get back to Club football, which is the best feeling,” Johnson told the clubs Official Website.

“I can’t wait to get started again!

“Every day counts and we’re all looking forward to playing. I think the team have surprised people the past couple of years and we’re looking forward to doing that again. We’re looking forward to challenging ourselves against the best teams.

“We’ve got top players in our group – it’s not long until the season starts and we’re looking forward to getting the campaign underway. All the boys are happy and raring to go.”
