Sebastien Haller is set to make his first appearance for the Hammers against Fulham at Craven Cottage next Saturday wearing the number 22 shirt.
Chicharito appears to have beaten off competition for the No 9 shirt 🙂 from the club’s record signing.
Haller was unable to join the squad in China – where today they take on Newcastle United in the third place play off game in Shanghai.
But both he and £25 million signing Pablo Fornals – signed from Villareal will be meeting up with their new team mates once the boys have returned from China and report to training after a rest day next week.
Meanwhile, the pair are likely to be watching the team in action this morning with the game going out live on Sky at 10 am and the first half team due to be announced around 9 am (our time).
Manuel Pellegrini believes the game against Manchester City was a good work out but called for a more sustained 90 minute performance today in his pre-match presser.
