Michail Antonio: 'West Ham United feels like home'

West Ham United winger Michail Antonio says that he is "home" after joining the Hammers on transfer deadline day.

Michail Antonio has said that he feels like he is "home" following his deadline day move to West Ham United.

The winger was one of four players to sign for the London side on Tuesday, penning a four-year deal from Nottingham Forest.

The 25-year-old, who was born in Wandsworth, told the club's website: "I'm buzzing and finally happy to be back in London at a massive club. I've always been around London and I came to a couple of games here when I was younger, so I'm happy to be finally here and at a club I watched when I was younger.

"I've picked West Ham because I'm home. It's London and I'm comfortable here and I think that's where I'll play my best football. I have seen the way the manager plays and I reckon I can flourish here.

"Growing up, I wanted to be around the best and have competition and being at West Ham there is lots of good competition. The last result, winning 3-0 at Liverpool, showed that I am coming to a great team that's established in the Premier League and hopefully I can put my mark down here at the club."

Antonio started his career with Tooting and Mitcham United before joining Reading in 2008.
