It may not be clear who West Ham’s manager will be next season but it seems the Hammers are pushing ahead with their transfer activity.
Fans will expect plenty of action this summer to improve upon what has been another disappointing campaign at the London Stadium and it’s reported the Hammers have completed their first signing.
However, this midfield addition is unlikely to immediately bolster the first-team squad as it comes in the form of a fresh-faced 16-year-old talent.
Slovakian outlet Sportinak report West Ham have completed the signing of Sebastian Nebyla from Spartak Moscow on a two-year deal.

Posting the report on Twitter, it’s accompanied by an image of the teenager signing a contract in front of a West Ham badge – so it’s a big indication that a deal is indeed complete.
The report first rose last week but has now started to be picked up by the British media and another image posted on Twitter shows the youngster at training with Matthew Upson and Paul Konchesky.

It’s stated that Nebyla rejected interest from other clubs to sign for the Hammers and will join the U18 side for next season, though he has hopes of pushing into the U23 ranks swiftly.
