West Ham have completed the signing of teenage Ghanaian goalkeeper Joseph Anang, according to a club insider.
ExWHUemployee, who is a reliable source of Hammers transfer information has reported on their Twitter account on Thursday afternoon that the 19-year-old has joined Slaven Bilic’s side and is now waiting on international clearance before confirmation.
Anang has spent the summer with West Ham and has been given opportunities to showcase his talents in the club’s Under-23s.
His addition also marks the Hammers’ second goalkeeper signing of the window after bringing in the more experienced Joe Hart on loan from Manchester City.
The signing of Hart has seen Darren Randolph move out to Middlesbrough in search of first team football, while Adrian could also be heading for the exit doors after the addition of the England international.
It is reported that West Ham will seek a replacement if the Spaniard leaves and that is unlikely to be Anang, but supporters will certainly be hoping that he can contribute in the future.
