The summer transfer window opened on 10 June and it was confirmed earlier that West Ham United have made their third acquisition since the end of the last campaign, as 17 year-old Patrick Kelly has joined the club on a three-year contract from Northern Irish Premiership club Coleraine.
The midfielder will start his career in East London by going straight into Mark Robson’s development squad as he will hope to then make his way up to First Team level.
Kelly becomes the first youngster that the Hammers have signed this season following the arrivals of Thierry Nevers, Pierre Ekwah Elimby and Armstrong Oko-Flex when the window initially opened last season.
One player that has left the club today is striker Sonny Perkins after he has decided not to renew his contract with the East Londoners.
The club are hoping to get further signings through the door before the new Premier League season gets underway on August 7 so as soon as any more movements are made either to or from Stratford, this site will have all the very latest.
