West Ham revealed its first official signing of the new year on Friday night in Southampton defender Jose Fonte.
It looks like a shrewd piece of business for the Hammers to sign Southampton's club captain for £8 million after he was linked with Manchester United this summer for double after winning Euro 2016 with Portugal. The 33-year-old, who is not available to play this weekend, signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with a club option for a third year. Said Fonte: "I signed for West Ham because they are a great club and a very big club. They have a lot of fans and I have known for a number of years how passionate they are. The manager was also a very big influence. I thought that he really wanted me and that he sold me the project and the ambition of the Club." Jan 21 - 5:45 AM
