Festive fun with Behrami

Valon Behrami proved a popular visitor to the Lakeside store this week as he helped spread some Christmas cheer.

The midfielder went along to the club shop to sign autographs and pose for pictures, and young and old queued out the door for the chance to say hello. Behrami, who has been training this week after a knee problem, was making his first visit to the shopping centre and enjoyed the experience of meeting fans in the Hammers heartland.

He said: "I enjoyed it very much. It was good to meet all the supporters and everyone was very nice to me. I would like to wish everyone a happy Christmas and hopefully I will be back in the team very soon."
