James Tomkins: 'Victor Moses will be great for West Ham United'

West Ham United defender James Tomkins believes that Chelsea striker Victor Moses will be a major signing for the Upton Park outfit this season.

West Ham United defender James Tomkins has claimed that former England Under-21s teammate Victor Moses will be a major signing for the Hammers this season.

Moses, who has opted to represent Nigeria at senior level, completed a season-long loan move to Upton Park from Chelsea on September 1.

Tomkins told the official West Ham website: "I know Victor Moses well fairly well from our time playing together for England.

"He was brilliant for Stoke last season and is a nightmare to mark. The lads have already seen that in training. He can be a match winner on his day and I will try and help him settle in as I know him well.

"For him to come here and play first-team football is something he is seeking to do. I think it is good business for the club and we have strengthened areas of the squad that we needed to and it was great recruitment."

Moses joined Chelsea from Wigan Athletic in 2012 for a reported fee of £9m.
