West Ham United stars Lukasz Fabianski and Grady Diangana gave hundreds of Hammers supporters an early Christmas present as they appeared at the Club's Liberty Romford Store.

The Poland goalkeeper and England U20 winger have both been in outstanding form in Claret and Blue and their popularity was obvious as fans queued patiently for autographs and photographs from their heroes.

Diangana, who broke into the first team in spectacular fashion this season after coming through the Academy of Football, was happy to give something back to the people who cheer him and his teammates on from the stands.

"I love doing this because it makes fans happy and whatever makes them happy is good for them!" said the 20-year-old. "I've never really collected autographs myself, but I love doing it for the supporters.

"You can see how many people have turned up and how much it means to them, so it's always good to give back when you can.

"I have actually only swapped shirts once too, with Lucas Moura when we played Tottenham, but hopefully I'll be able to get a few more in the future!"
