Joao Mario is using his free time to learn the lyrics to West Ham anthem ‘I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles’

The Portuguese midfielder is settling in well at his new home

West Ham pulled off one of the coups of the January transfer window by securing the loan signing of Joao Mario until the end of the season. 

The Inter Milan midfielder was a big part of Portugal’s successful Euro 2016 campaign, and brings a little bit of extra flair and excitement to the Hammers line-up.

His unveiling video was pretty cool, too.

And having made two appearances for David Moyes’ side – playing 45 minutes in the defeat to Wigan before starting in the 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace – the 25-year-old is keen to embrace life at the London club.

Speaking to West Ham’s official website, he revealed he’s even trying to learn the lyrics to the Hammers famous anthem ‘I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles’.

He said: “I used my day off on Wednesday to move into my new apartment, so I am happy that I have already found the place where I’ll live for the next few months.

“I am happy to be here and I must enjoy this opportunity and I want to play well and go to the World Cup.

“I am here to help West Ham and also to grow into the Premier League.

“I am trying to keep listening to know all the song Bubbles so hopefully I’ll be able to learn the whole song over the next few weeks.”

Great effort, Joao.
