West Ham Sign Swiss Keeper

West Ham United have added some more depth to their goalkeeping department by signing the young Swiss goalkeeper Raphael Spiegel from Grasshoppers for an undisclosed fee.

Spiegel has inked a three-year deal with West Ham, with the option of another year, and is due to meet up with his new team mates later on this week.

He has represented his country at various youth levels and is regarded as one of their brightest prospects.

The 19-year-old is expected to provide cover for recently signed senior keepers Jussi Jaaskelainen and Stephen Henderson.

I don’t know much more about the young man but it looks like our goalkeeping situation is strong now with Green, Boffin and Stech having all been replaced. Lets hope we can sign a few defenders next as we are looking light in that department.
