Vaz Tê signed for the Hammers January 2012 for £500,000 on a two-and-a-half year deal with an option for a third year and made his debut for the club, coming on as an 89th minute substitute against Millwall. Vaz Tê will be best remembered for scoring the winning goal in the 87th minute in the Wembley Play off final. That was the 24th goal Vaz Tê had scored in the 2011–12 season. Good Luck Ricardo!
