Players flooding in

‚ÄčThe youngster has become the Hammers fourth signing of the summer, with Havard Nordtveit, Sofiane Feghouli and Gokhan Tore already signing.

The 20-year-old is touted as one of the young hot prospects in the country, having come up through the ranks at United, he was loaned to Barnsley.

Fletcher concluded: “I think it is a Club with a lot of ambition" with a "lot of good players" and a "special final season" who are a "club built on traditions of giving youngsters a run and hopefully I can get my chance as well.”
