Henry signs …but may have to wait!

doneil-henryThe Hammers have confirmed that 21 year old Canadian defender Doneil Henry from Cypriot side Apollon Limassol has been signed on a year three year contract.
However, a club source told ClaretandHugh: “He’s about six months away from becoming a first team regular and will be carefully looked after as he is prepared for the Premier League.
“It’s our policy to look for promising young players this window although you can never rule out a bigger name coming in! Watch this space”
Co chairman David Sullivan’s son Jack announced the news on his Twitter account today but the news was expected as soon as the window opening with Sam Allardyce having explained a few days back the player had been recommended to him from former Blackburn defender Ryan Nelsen.
