The 21-year old has spent the last four years with the Swiss club, winning the league title four times since joining as an 18-year old.

Zoua was a reported target for the Baggies, but he spoke of his delight upon his move to Germany.

"Hamburg have shown more interest in me than any other team in the world so that is why I am here signing a contract," he told skysports.com.

"There was an English team interested but it cooled at the last minute.

"I am happy to be at Hamburg and hope to make the fans happy by scoring goals for them in the Bundesliga which has become the top league in the world for me."

Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund's German under-21 international Lasse Sobiech says that he is hoping to make the switch to Hamburg with chances of first-team action at the Westfalenstadion limited.

"It is a fact I have been in touch with Hamburger SV. We have had a lot of talks and negotiations and I am very keen on this," he said.

"I am hopeful to see a final decision taken on this very soon."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
