Having jumped at the chance to team up with Sam Allardyce once again - following their hugely successful spells at Bolton in the mid-noughties - Nolan ignored the rules of modern day football transfers and dropped a division in order to join West Ham.
The attacking midfielder is well known for his goalscoring exploits and West Ham will be hoping he can become their first midfielder to score more than 10 goals in a season since Frank Lampard achieved that particular feat in the late 1990s.
