Hammers' stars had a slightly delayed summer holiday compared to other Premier League sides with the Europa Conference League final coming more than a week after the league season finished - although it was worth the wait as the side triumphed over Fiorentina.

Since then, players have had the chance to jet off on luxury holidays or spend some much-needed time at home with family and loved ones.

For Bowen, who scored the all-important winner in the Conference League Final, it was a chance to hunker down into his role as a new dad. The forward and former Love Island contestant Dyer welcomed their twin daughters Star and Summer on May 22 this year.

When answering a Q&A on Instagram, Dyer was asked if she thought it would be a 'struggle' with Bowen returning to West Ham duty and not being able to spend so much time at home.

The 26-year-old replied: "Yes he has gone back to football now, so I've been spoilt with having him home so much. He has honestly been amazing I didn't think I could love him any more than I do now.

"It will be hard but I'll just get extra help whenever I need it and I'll be taking the kids to as many games as I can, especially whilst they are small and can't move around."

Bowen and West Ham are next in pre-season friendly action against Perth Glory at the Optus Stadium as they being a tour of Australia. The Hammers will meet fellow Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur while abroad before coming back to the UK.
