West Ham have signed Manchester United striker Ashley Fletcher on a four-year contract.
The 20-year-old had a strike rate of a goal every three games for Barnsley while on loan last season and was wanted by a host of clubs, including Leeds United, but Slaven Bilic has nipped in ahead of everyone.
Fletcher was out of contract at Old Trafford so no actual transfer fee will be paid but the Hammers will have to pay compensation due to his age, although a figure has yet to be agreed between the two clubs.
“I think West Ham is a club with a lot of ambition,” the England Under-20 international told West Ham’s website.
“They are a club built on traditions of giving youngsters a run and hopefully I can get my chance as well.”
