West Ham Transfer Surprise

West Ham United are pleased to announce the double signing of Italy striker David Di Michele and Congolese left-back Herita Ilunga, subject to registration at the Premier League.

The club recognise the lateness of this announcement but certain formalities including the release of the international transfer certificates had to be completed. West Ham United can also confirm discussions with Ghana midfielder Stephen Appiah are ongoing. This deal can be completed outside of the transfer window as Appiah is a free agent.

Di Michele and Ilunga will arrive on season-long loans from Torino and Toulouse respectively with a view to possible permanent transfers and join Valon Behrami and Jan Lastuvka as new recruits.

I'm really hoping these loans are not just cover (at least not Ilunga) but will ad quality to the starting lineup. However, In view of previous signings of non-PL-broken players (e.g. Faubert, Masherano and even Tevez) I predict that these boys will get very limited first team experience the first half of the season.

At the moment the relief of having at least cover for a refurbished slow right back dressed up as a left back, is greater than the doubt.
Let's just hope registration at the Premiere League won't be a big issue!
