Jarrod Bowen tells West Ham fans exactly what they want to hear after January transfer

New West Ham forward Jarrod Bowen is confident that the Hammers can fire themselves away from the threat of relegation following his arrival from Hull City.

The 22-year-old was unable to feature last weekend as David Moyes' side drew 3-3 with Brighton which, accompanied by results elsewhere, saw them drop into the relegation zone.

Heading into a tough period with clashes against Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Wolves and Tottenham before the next international break, the situation is a major concern.

However, Bowen is confident that the quality in the squad will be enough to steer the Hammers away from the relegation zone and into the comforts of Premier League safety.

"Sometimes you find yourself in positions you don't expect. We are there at the moment, but you only have to look around the squad, the coaching staff and everyone to see that there is plenty of quality and Premier League experience. They know what it takes to stay in this division," he told Sky Sports.

"It's a really good group and the lads have been welcoming. Sometimes you feel like the new kid at school when you don't really know anyone and you don't know the surroundings, but everyone has made me feel very welcome and that goes for all the staff as well.

"The manager said he had watched all my goals, all my games, so he knows what I'm about and he knows that I like to score goals, but I'm not coming in here and demanding a starting place.

"I know I've to earn it, and when I get the opportunity, it's down to me to score goals because I know that's what they have brought me in to do.

"I'm looking forward to the responsibility. I had it at Hull, but this is a whole new level. I'm going to have to get used to the pace of the Premier League and the technical side of it.

"I had a little taste of it at Hull before they were relegated in 2017, but I've developed a lot as a player since then. It was the right time to move and I feel like I'm ready."
