West Ham sign Kouyate Kid
West Ham have signed Anderlect midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate for an undisclosed fee, believed to be about £7 million. This all seems very good on paper. He's a Senegalese international who has won the league four times with Anderlect and has Champions League experience. He'll fill in the gaps left by the departure of Taylor and Collison and might even be a replacement for Mo Diame, who seems to think he's too big for WHU. Kouyate can also play in defence which is useful. So we now have the Zarate Kid and the Kouyate Kid - should be good for the animated version of our season if nothing else.
