In Pictures | Hammers arrive in Leverkusen

West Ham United have departed for their UEFA Europa League quarter-final first leg at Bayer Leverkusen.

David Moyes' men trained under grey skies at Rush Green on Wednesday morning, putting the finishing touches on their preparations for a third successive European last-eight tie, before heading to Stansted Airport.

There, a short hour-long flight to western Germany awaited, as the Irons get set to face Bundesliga opposition for the second round in a row.

Upon their arrival, the Hammers headed straight to Leverkusen's BayArena home, where the players got a feel for the surroundings, and both Kurt Zouma and David Moyes will held pre-match press conferences.
