Fellow Czech and Hammers goalkeeping coach Ludek Miklosko certainly feels that Lastuvka has something to offer in the Premiership. However, he hinted that the new-boy won't pose much threat to Green's jersey.

"I know Jan very well and he had some problems when he was at Fulham. He was on his own because, for some reason, his family didn’t come with him to England.

"He couldn’t concentrate on his football properly, but they will come with him this time. I know him and I trust him - I’m looking forward to working with him."

Upbeat Lastuvka added: "I hope that I will get into good shape overall and will be as helpful to the team as possible. So far I have had only good feelings."
