Henry the Hammer
West Ham have signed Canadian international Donell Henry from Cypriot club Apollon Limassol. The positive is that he comes recommended by Ryan Nelson, Big Sam's captain at Blackburn and an underrated centre back, who should know a good defender when he sees one. On the debit side Henry's only played for Toronto in the MLS and Limassol in the Cypriot league, so will need time to adapt to Premier League football and is more one for the future. But then Winston Reid didn't have much top league experience when he signed for us either… and Henry should provide some valuable back-up to Tomkins, Reid and Collins.
