West Ham United have apparently completed the signing of talented young midfielder Dan Rigge from Manchester City.
That’s according to a claim from well-respected football journalist Fabrizio Romano who has suggested that the Hammers have beaten eight other Premier League clubs to the signing of the 16-year-old Manchester City starlet.
West Ham manager David Moyes is well known for bringing the very best young and talented players to the London Stadium.
Last summer, Moyes signed Armstrong Okoflex, Levi Laing, Thierry Nevers, Pierre Ekwah Elimby and Brian Kinnear for the development squad.
And this summer, we have apparently agreed a deal to sign Patrick Kelly from Northern Irish club Coleraine (BBC).
Moyes’s work appears to be far from finished when it comes to signing the very best of the new generation…
West Ham win Dan Rigge race
The 16-year-old Manchester City starlet was hot property this summer.
Nine Premier League clubs, including the Hammers, were in the race for his signature.
And West Ham have won that race.
That’s according to Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano.
So it seems as though West Ham have secured quite the coup doesn’t it.
Rigge is obviously a very talented young footballer, albeit an unproven one. The 16-year-old is far form the finished article but the fact that so many Premier League clubs wanted to sign him proves that West Ham winning the race for Dan Rigge is a very big deal.
