Sullivan: ‘We could have a real superstar’

SportWest Ham United Joint-Chairman David Sullivan believes the Club may have found a real superstar in the guise of 23 year old Pedro Obiang who signed a four year contract with the Hammers. West Ham are thought to have paid a fee of around £4.5m to Sampdoria for the Spanish midfielder.

Sullivan told the official website: “He is a top player. He is an athlete and played every game for Sampdoria last season. He is a box-to-box player who can operate in a number of positions.”

“He has played for Spain’s Under-21 side and you don’t play for them unless you are a good player.”

“He is a fantastic footballer and will keep possession of the ball and tackle. He has got many qualities that will be admired by the West Ham supporters.”

“We hope that if we can improve him a little bit we could have a real superstar.”

Joint Chairman David Gold added on twitter “I’ve just spoke to Pedro and he sounded v excited to be here. He promised me that he’d learn to sing Bubbles in less than a month! dg”

Gold came in for some stick on twitter by posting a photo of Angelo Ogbonna instead of Pedro Obiang while welcoming Obiang to the club.

  1. The transfer window is open!!!! Where are all the bids for nolan?

  2. I think Nolan and associates could all do an Elvis and “leave the building”.To be bluntly honest why are some of the Allardyce team still on the payroll?

  3. He’s the right age,solid quality player and European I think he’s going to be a top player

  4. I like the fact we’re looking at good upcoming talent.. Do need a senior player or 2 for balance hoping we can remove a lot of dead wood too

  5. Playing along side Kouyate with Poyet as backup our defensive midfield look 1st class.
    Not worried about age Pedro has good years behind him in a tough good league and Kouyate proved last year experience and age don’t count for that much as he outshone
    Song,Nolan and Noble,the same with Cresswell and the older defenders,
    We now need to splash the cash and bring in a creative player to control midfield and produce the ammo for the forwards,Oscar of Chelski or the lad fro Baskitas sounds good
    Yes we have Downing but we need to go one better,

  6. Totally agree Bubs the need for a creative midfielder has been a long time coming. There was no point buying one when the sloth was in charge but a new dawn has begun lets get the creativeness back ,in Slav we trust…
