Say Hello to 'The Phenomenon'!

He may have a nickname that brings to mind cheesy sci-fi films, but Jonathan Calleri is Hammers bound!

Various media sources have confirmed that the long-mooted transfer has finally happened, while Calleri himself confirmed the move earlier today on television saying:

 “I will play at West Ham. It is now closed. I wanted to play in Europe. I hope I can adapt as soon as possible to the Premier League.”

The  one year loan deal had been delayed by a work permit application but this has obviously now been granted.

As the link below confirms, 'The Phenomenon' is a natural striker who likes to play centrally rather than out wide (as so many of our current forwards seem to prefer!).

He is also partial to the kind of trickery that Hammers fans became used to when Ravel Morrison was at the club, with an astonishing rabona chip for the first goal shown in the link.

Although only 22, he has already excelled in the Argentinian, Uruguayan and Brazilian leagues. His arrival will be delayed by his selection for Argentina in the Olympics.

Where he will fit into SuperSlavs plans remains to be seen.
