Sullivan jnr: Antonio joins Irons

antonioNottingham Forest winger Michail Antonio has joined West Ham – according to Jack Sullivan.

David Sullivan’s youngest son has tweeted within the last five minutes that: “”Antonio is now a West Ham player ! 4 years with a 2 year option !”

The on/off move came right back on the agenda after a morning strategy meeting following manager Slaven Bilic giving the nod to a deal at around £7million.

Forest had upped the price overnight and wanted the money paid up front but the Irons held further talks and the matter was sorted out with the fee likely to be paid in three yearly tranches.

Despite adding Victor Moses to the squad, the Hammers always remained keen on the 25 year old despite his lack of Premier League experience.

  1. Great addition to the squad. Assuming as Palace didn’t sign him they wont sell Bolasie to the Spuds ? what a shame

  2. Another touch !!!!!!

  3. Good business today, almost a brand new team – plenty for Bilic to work with!
