Angelo Ogbonna has now signed for West Ham, for a reported £8.5 million fee according to the Daily Mail. A player who has learned his trade in Serie A will surely know a bit about defending and with Reid, Tomkins and Collins to choose from, plus Burke and Henry as back-up, we've now got six centre-backs in the squad. Things are starting to look exciting at WHU with the addition of Obiang, Payet and Ogbonna. We've spent something like £23 million already and it looks like the Davids are really going to give it a go in our final season at Upton Park. Irons!
