Jose Fonte: Southampton star officially joins West Ham

In official news, West Ham have officially signed Jose Fonte from Southampton.

The Portugal international signed on a two-and-a-half year deal with the transfer fee reportedly set at 8 million.

As reported by The Star:

“West Ham United have captured Portugal’s Euro 2016 winner Jose Fonte from Southampton on a 2-1/2-year contract for eight million pounds, the London club said on Friday.

The central defender, who has the option to sign for another season, had not featured for Southampton since handing in a transfer request earlier this month.

The south-coast club claimed he had repeatedly rejected improved terms but Fonte, who had 18 months left on his deal, countered that he had not been offered a new contract.”
