  • Published

West Ham boss David Moyes has been talking to the media before Sunday's season opener against Manchester City.

Here are the highlights from his news conference:

  • Of Burnley winger Maxwel Cornet, Moyes revealed: "He's in the building now, so hopefully we can get that one done."

  • Italian striker Gianluca Scamacca, a £30.5m summer signing from Sassuolo, is unlikely to make his debut yet, with Moyes stating: "Gianluca has only just joined us, so he’s a little bit behind. I’m not expecting him to be available this weekend."

  • Moyes says the Hammers are "far from finished" in the transfer market - pointing out they lost players this summer, have players injured and didn't sign anybody in January.

  • The Scot says it is "fabulous for the football club" that the London Stadium capacity has grown to 62,500.

  • He says defender Angelo Ogbonna is still several weeks away from a first-team return following injury.
