Ashley Fletcher says he feels settled at West Ham already after scoring on his debut in the friendly draw with FC Slovacko.
Fletcher joined the Hammers from Manchester United last week after being told he had no future at Old Trafford under new boss Jose Mourinho following a successful spell on loan at Barnsley last season, where he scored nine goals.
Fletcher is hoping to force his way into Slaven Bilic’s first-team plans at West Ham in the upcoming campaign and impressed at the first opportunity, scoring the second goal in the 2-2 draw with Czech side Slovacko on their Austrian tour.
“I’ve loved every minute,” the 20-year-old told the club’s website. “Everyone has welcomed me with open arms and I am delighted to be at West Ham.
“The senior players have helped me to settle in, we have a great group here and hopefully we’ll kick on.
“My aim has to be to break into the first team. It’s a very talented team and one that is going to be competing at the top of the Premier League, so for me it will be vital to keep showing myself I can do it.”
Fletcher added to Kevin Noble’s opener in the friendly and he was delighted with his goal.
He added: “It’s nice to get off the mark. Ultimately We are a bit disappointed not to get the win tonight, but it’s pre-season and we go again.”
