West Ham keeper Hegyi appreciates working with Fabianski, Areola

West Ham goalkeeper Krisztian Hegyi is delighted with his progress this season.

The 20 year-old has found himself included in first team squads for recent Premier League games.

Hegyi told whufc.com: "Getting those experiences has been huge.

“As a young 'keeper, to get that chance – one that has come sooner than I thought it would – has been really good. I'm just trying to take it all in, enjoy every single day and learn from each experience.

“The routine is similar in a lot of ways to what we're used to at U21s level, but the level of preparation in the first team is a lot more specific. The details are more minute. That's the biggest difference, but I feel very lucky."

The vastly experienced first-team duo of Łukasz Fabiański and Alphonse Areola have already given Hegyi much to think about and add to his repertoire.

“Since the summer, I've been training with the first team a lot and I feel really good about it," he continued. “Of course, I do miss the U21s changing room sometimes and being with that group, but I'm really enjoying the first team environment. I have learned a lot since working with this group.

“Watching players like Łukasz and Alphonse, being around them every day and seeing how high their standards are even in training, it's so good. I watch them when we train together and on matchdays. Mentally, they've helped me to focus up on matchdays too. Things like how they react to different situations is huge, so it's great to learn from them."
