Hammers sign king Arthur
Good news is West Ham have finally signed a new left-back having completed a four-year deal for Olympiakos's Arthur Masuaku. At 22 he's won the title twice with Olympiakos and has played in Ligue 1 for Valenciennes. He's also played in the Champions League and for the French Under-19 side so should be real competition for Cresswell. As it is he's guaranteed four of five months in the side while Cresswell recovers so should have plenty of time to bed in. Meanwhile Swansea have accepted West Ham's £20 million offer for Andre Ayew, but Swansea appear to be waiting to sign a replacement before the deal goes through.
