Breaking News: Jussi Signs

SkySports News are this morning reporting that Jussi Jaaskelainen has signed a 2 year contract with West Ham to be reunited with his old manager Sam Allardyce.

The Finnish Stopper turned down the chance of staying at Bolton after rejecting their offer of a new contact in favour of a move down south to be between the sticks for the mighty Hammers!

West Ham are officially expected to confirm the deal shortly, with the 37-year-old  joining us on July 1 when the transfer window reopens.

The news comes hot on the heels of the transfer update from the club yesterday confirming they are close to two excellent players available on a bosman, and also the news Rob Green looks set to sign with QPR.

Good news in my opinion and will be an excellent role model for Henderson as Jussi has been a top keeper and still has a few good years left in the tank.
