Hammers Sign Second player from Moscow

Following confirmation of a deal to sign attacking midfielder Nikola Vlašić, West Ham United have completed their second capture of Deadline Day. David Moyes has secured the services of Czech international Alex Král.

The midfielder will link up with fellow Czech teammates Tomáš Souček and Vladimír Coufal in Stratford once they have all returned from playing for their country during September’s international break.

It has been well documented that the Hammers boss has been monitoring the player for some time and it looks as if the Scotsman has finally landed another of his targets.

Král will join on a season-long loan from Spartak Moscow with a view to making the move permanent next summer.
