There has been much speculation – not to mention excitement – over the Hammers being ready to a announce the signing of young Brazilian Luiza.
However, he is not being seen in any way as a first team player and will link up with the Development squad on is arrival.
He is very much one for the future who one inside declared as a good prospect but right now a bit of a punt.
In releasing the news Sky Sports’ Transfer Centre declared: “Sao Paolo defender Luizao is expected to join West Ham in January on a three-and-a-half year deal.”
It is a free transfer and appears on the face on it to confirm the Hammers do not have serious funds for the next window.
