Diego Poyet, the son of Sunderland manager Gus Poyet, has joined West Ham United after his contract with Charlton Athletic expired.
Despite playing only 20 matches for 18th place Charlton Athletic in the Championship last season, holding midfielder Diego Poyet attracted a great deal of attention in the transfer market. At 19 years old, the son of former Uruguay international and current Sunderland manager Gus Poyet is physically mature and very composed sitting in front of the back four. Due to his age, Charlton will be due some compensation but given the Hammers' budget constraints the signing is a good one since bigger clubs were rumored to be interested as well. Jul 7 - 9:29 AM
