Avram Grant is delighted with the capture of Gary O'Neil and has revealed he expects more signings.
O'Neil completed a transfer from Middlesbrough to the Hammers for an undisclosed fee on a two-and-a-half-year contract earlier on Tuesday.
And Grant was quick to highlight the qualities of his new midfielder who is expected to feature in their Carling Cup semi-final on Wednesday.
"O'Neil is a good player, he is experienced, he has played in the Premier League," said Grant.
"He is very energetic and clever. I am sure he will be very good for us. I am happy he can help us tomorrow."
Grant also confirmed that Valon Behrami's switch to Serie A side Fiorentina is almost complete.
He said: "The deal (for Behrami to Fiorentina) is nearly done. I think everything will be okay. It is just formalities and of course money."
One player that will not be featuring in the Carling Cup is Demba Ba as the club have not been able to complete his loan deal in time.
The Senegal international had been expected to complete a switch to Stoke from Hoffenheim early this month but failed a medical.
Grant, however, has no fears over the player's fitness and was pleased with Ba's comments on his personal website talking about his anticipation at the move to Upton Park.
"I like Ba's comments," he added.
"It is always good when a player wants to come and join our club. I think he is doing the right thing.
"We are a good club and he can help us. It is almost done."
