Wayne's Wonderful World

Wayne Quinn says he is delighted to be able to kickstart his career again at Upton Park - and has no qualms about leaving Newcastle.

Wayne has signed on loan for the rest of the season - when he becomes a free agent - and says:

"I came here initially for a month and have thoroughly enjoyed my time here and as it goes something has been sorted out until the end of the season.

"I am a West Ham player now, I am happy about that, and it is a case of doing my best for West Ham.

"Of course I would be happy to get a contract beyond that, and I am not saying it hasn't crossed my mind, but first and foremost, after that first month, the second step for me was staying for the rest of the season.

"We will have to wait and see but if something came of it at the end of the season I would be more than delighted."

His aim now is to concentrate on getting West Ha back into the top flight, and he adds:

"I would like to get back in the Premiership because I haven't played enough games there with Newcastle.

"We have got a good enough squad to get back in the Premiership and we have got players coming back fit now.

"The fans and everyone are going in the right direction and it is nice to be a part of that and try to achieve promotion with West Ham."

Any sadness at leaving the north east, though?

"No, in truth - I am delighted to get out of there, to be fair.

"I miss the lads but I felt I wasn't really getting anywhere up there; it was a case of getting out and playing, like I have been in the last month.

"I have loved every minute of it here and I am a West Ham player now - that is the only club that concerns me now and, although I have left there amicably, I have no time to think about them because my job is at West Ham."

Speaking ahead of the Norwich game, he says:

"It will be tough and there is a fine line between winning and not, but we are confident after getting the result at Derby and it is back to basics and back to business to get the three points."
