Guy Demel has backed West Ham new boy Pablo Armero to make an impact at Upton Park.

Colombia international Armero became the Hammers’ third loan signing of the January transfer window when he joined from Napoli on deadline day after the arrivals of Italian duo Antonio Nocerino and Marco Borriello.

The left-back, who can also play on the wing, is yet to make his debut for Sam Allardyce’s side but was an unused substitute in their 2-0 wins over Norwich and Aston Villa.

Demel says Armero is looking sharp in training and he expects the 27-year-old to shine when he gets his chance.

“He’s settled a bit,” Demel told London24. “You can see he looks really good on the ball. He’s a good left-footer and a good lad.

“On the pitch he’s going to be great, he just needs to get used to the way we play and to the team.

“I think the fans are going to see him some time soon.”

The in-form Hammers welcome Southampton to Upton Park on Saturday, when they will be hoping to extend their run of three consecutive wins and four clean sheets.

Demel was speaking at West Ham’s open training session, where season ticket holders and corporate members were able to watch the first team in action up close.
