From the Boardroom - David Gold

I am delighted that we have managed to secure our second major signing during the January transfer window. Robert Snodgrass is another hugely talented player that we are bringing into the squad.

He has been Slaven's target for some time and we are thrilled that we have now clinched his signature.

It has been well publicised that other top flight clubs were also interested in signing him but I think it shows the ambition of the Club and the direction we are heading that he chose to join West Ham United.

There is no question that he has been one of Hull's best players over the last couple of years and he is a senior Premier League professional who will fit straight into our squad.

We know from day one what kind of player we are getting and he has performed in the top flight for a considerable period.

The current transfer window is always a tough one to get good players and I have to pay tribute once again to David Sullivan and Slaven Bilic for helping get another seasoned professional into the squad.

We signed a European Championship winner last week and have now signed one of the best wingers in the Premier League.

You only have to look at his stats to see what kind of player we are getting. He has put in 137 crosses in just 20 games this season and I am sure Andy Carroll will be relishing the prospect of playing alongside him.

We could have another special partnership in the making and I am sure Andy will be saying 'give me even more'.

Andy is on top form at the moment and I have got every confidence that he can maintain this form and stay among the goals.

After seeing him score the wonder goal against Crystal Palace, he then followed it up with two more against Middlesbrough and he looks back to his best. Long may it continue.

We have had two important victories in the last two games against teams who were below us in the table and we have managed to move well clear of the bottom three.

We are now looking upwards and there is no reason why we cannot cement our place in the top half of the table.

I want to say a special thank you once again to our magnificent fans who made the long trip to the north east last weekend and were magnificent throughout the whole game. We are very lucky to have that dedication.

We now want to make it three wins in a row when we play Manchester City next week and we will be looking for revenge following the FA Cup defeat earlier in the month.

It was a difficult night for everyone connected with the Club but we have come a long way since that defeat and the players are now full of confidence as we look to secure another big win at London Stadium.
