Mladen Petric: Has moved across London to West Ham

The Croatia international scored five goals in 10 starts for Fulham, but was released at the end of the last campaign. By snapping Petric up on a free transfer, West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has added some much-needed firepower to his side.

Andy Carroll will remain on the sidelines after suffering a setback in his return from a heel injury and the Hammers had Modibo Maiga and Ricardo Vaz Te as their only fit strikers before Petric's arrival.

The 32-year-old has revealed that he agreed to move to Upton Park after talking to Guy Demel, his former team-mate at Hamburg.

"I'm very happy, excited and looking forward to training with the team and to the first game," said Petric.

"I know [the Premier League] and I'm happy to be back in the Premier League, because it's a fantastic league and I'm really looking forward to being part of this team and this club.

"There are a lot of good players here and I'm happy to be part of such a good team and I hope we can all celebrate my first goal for West Ham as soon as possible.

"I didn't speak to Sam [Allardyce] until today but I've heard a lot about him and I spoke to Guy Demel, who I know from my time at Hamburg and I'm sure I'll have a good time here.

"I remember playing at West Ham last year and it was a very tough game for us at Fulham. I think we lost 3-0! It's not easy to come here [as the away side] and take points away."

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
