Captain's blog

Friday was a momentous day in the history of West Ham United.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, announced that we have been given the right to make the Olympic Stadium our home and it was fantastic to be there to see the plans get unveiled.

I'm very excited and delighted that the deal is finally over the line. It's a massive thing for West Ham and it's about us producing everything on the pitch and making sure that when we do move into there we're in the higher echelons of the Premier League.

Now we've got this stadium it's going to be even better for the supporters, they can get here very easily. The transport links to the ground are fantastic and there's no doubt that this stadium is going to push us into the big boys territory.

We could have sold out Wembley ourselves last year, and when we go to the Olympic Stadium people are going to want to go there because of what the Olympics brought us. It gripped the nation.

The support we got at Wembley was fantastic and I'm sure we can get that week in, week out with our supporter base. I've spoken about that since I came to the club.

This is the right move for us. We're positive, we want to step up and be involved in European nights and things like that. Now everyone can see the visuals, I'm sure they'll be excited as us. We're just hoping we can prolong our careers now so we can play in there!

Our job now is to make sure this club is in a very good position when we do move in there.
