West Ham manager Sam Allardyce believes the signing of winger Matt Jarvis from Wolves would add an extra dimension to his squad.

Jarvis is set to seal a move to Upton Park that could see him become the most expensive signing in the club's history, with a reported fee of £10.75million including add-ons. The 26-year-old is likely to be involved at the weekend against Swansea if a deal is completed in time, and Allardyce praised the ability of the former Gillingham man.

"From my point of view it is a big piece of business. I think a quality young man who has got a lot of qualities that will add to the team we have already got," he said.
