Brazilian striker Wellington Paulista is set to complete a loan deal with West Ham United and will undergo a medical examination later today.
Paulista, who is a frontman with tons of experience, arrived in the capital yesterday evening. Wellington Paulista is now the third signing that Big Sam Allardyce has made since the January transfer window was opened and follows the signings of Marouane Chamakh and Joe Cole who played in Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Manchester United at the Boleyn ground.
The very experienced Brazilian has been very successful with his South American side Cruzeiro Esporte Clube and will be a welcome face in the premier League as the player is keen to show us what he is capable of.
The Hammers are looking to keep the Brazilian at the Boleyn Ground until the end of the season. If Wellington Paulista comes through his medical ok with no surprises, he would be offered a 3 year deal once he completes the rest of the season at the Hammers.
Big Sam has been very busy at the sales so far this January and can only mean good things for the Hammers, especially as we still have players out. Any additions are very welcome at the Boleyn Ground for sure.
