“It’s amazing,Â” Noble told told West Ham TV. Â“To have the Old Lady, as you call them, here will be special. I know the place will be sold out no doubt as it will be the first game here, and I can’t wait!
Â“We couldn’t ask for a bigger club. They have won their league for the last three or four years.
Â“I’m looking forward to getting away on holiday, having a good pre-season knowing you’re coming back here to play Juventus.Â”
Meanwhile, the club are building up to an emotional goodbye to the Boleyn Ground, with just two more top-flight games to come, against Swansea before the final match at the stadium against Manchester United on Tuesday, May 10.
