Major signing within 24 hours

Pedro-Obiang-Sampdoria_2835036 (1)We should expect the announcement of our second signing within 24 hours.

The chairman’s 15 year son Jack Sullivan has taken time off from his Duke of Edinburgh award to reveal on twitter.

“95% that we will announce our first big signing of the summer tomorrow. Keep checking @JsulivanWHU to get the news first”

Not to be outdone by the youngster West Ham’s official twitter channel followed suit an hour later confirming :

“BREAKING: West Ham United hope to announce a major new signing within the next 24 hours. Watch this space!

The announcement is expected to be official confirmation of  the 23 year old Sampdoria midfielder Pedro Obiang. Media reports suggest the final deal cost West Ham £4.4m and the player himself favored one West Ham fan’s comment on twitter that a deal was close.  Obiang passed a medical earlier this week and despite rumours that Spurs and AC Milan tried to hihack the deal it appears the Hammers have finally got their man.

  1. Ladies and gentlemen it’s Mr Carlton Co……blimey for a second there I had a flashback but then I remembered the good times are starting to roll

  2. It’s taken 2 years ,maybe hippo leaving was enough for him to see a future with us
    From what I have seen of him he is a better tackler than Song and does not give the ball away cheaply,the price looks good to ,last year we were quoted £8 million
