James Tomlin of West Ham arrives at Basildon Magistrates courtJames Tomkins can’t wait to get down to work with new signings Alex Song and Morgan  Amalfitano

Song arrived on loan from Barcelona prior to Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to Southampton and French midfielder  Amalfitano was our final deadline day signing..

And speaking to www.whufc.com Tomkins was excited at what the duo are set to bring to the club.

He said:“Alex Song is a massive player who comes with great experience in the Premier League

“He has gone to Barcelona and trained with the best, so he is only going to help us, I should imagine. We’re all really looking forward to playing alongside him.”

He added: “We played against Morgan last season at West Brom and he caused us a few problems and actually set up their goal as well, so he’ll be an important player for us.

“It shows how much we’re trying to strengthen our squad at the minute.

“I’m looking forward to working with the signings we’ve brought in and seeing how they will add to the squad. I’m sure they will do because they’re really good signings.

“I think we did some really good deals in the transfer market, bringing in the players that we needed. They’re going to add to our squad and they will be vital in helping us push towards where we want to get to.”

Deadline day also saw midfielder Mo Diame seal a £3.5million move from West Ham to Hull.

“Mo did really well for us here and the fans really liked him, but he obviously wanted to move on,” Tomkins said. “Everyone wishes him all the best.”
