Nikica Jelavic excited to work with Slaven Bilic again

Nikica Jelavic admits that he is "very excited" to be working with Slaven Bilic again after joining West Ham United.

Nikica Jelavic has revealed his delight with being given the opportunity to play for Slaven Bilic again after joining West Ham United.

The Hammers moved to boost their attack with the signing of Jelavic from Hull City on the final day of the transfer window, and the striker is excited to be working with former Croatia boss Bilic.

"I'm very excited to be linking up with Slaven again. He is a great manager and a great man. I'm delighted to be working with him and his staff again," the 30-year-old told the club's website.

"We worked together for the national team for four years and I am really happy to be with him here.

"He played for West Ham and for Everton – he knows the league and I know he can do the job here."

Jelavic could make his West Ham debut against Newcastle United on September 14.
