Matt Jarvis says that he can't wait to get his partnership with Andy Carroll up and running.
The two recent arrivals in east London have thus far started just one game together - the 3-1 defeat against Arsenal a fortnight ago - but West Ham fans have high hopes that the two can form a formidable partnership on the field.
It is a sentiment that Jarvis shares. Talking to a daily newspaper, he said: "We all know that whatever kind of ball you put into the box, Andyís going to be bursting to get on it. Thatís good to know as a winger.
Thereís 6ft plus of him, so he certainly makes his presence felt. Heís showing what he can do on the pitch and Iím going to be providing the ammunition for him to go and get on the end of. Hopefully we can strike up a good understanding."
Jarvis, West Ham's record-signing at £10.75million - who began his career at Millwall before being released as a 16-year-old - also admitted that he was keen to add to his sole international cap won in a 2011 friendly against Ghana.
"It does motivate me to keep playing well week-in, week-out," he added, "and if I do put in the performances, you never know."
Both Jarvis and Carroll are expected to feature in Sam Allardyce's starting XI when the Hammers take on Premier League strugglers Southampton at the Boleyn Ground tomorrow afternoon.
