Allardyce excited by Jarvis arrival

Published Add your comment

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.
