West Ham sign Bowen
West Ham fans had to wait until the very end of deadline day to see their final transfer of the window confirmed.
The Hammers tweeted late on Friday evening that they had completed the signing of Jarrod Bowen from Hull City.
The 23-year-old had been one of the standout stars in the Championship this term, netting 16 in 29 appearances for Hull.
Bowen has signed a five-and-a-half-year deal with the London outfit.
We are delighted to confirm the signing of highly-rated forward Jarrod Bowen from Hull City on a five-and-a-half-year contract.

Anderson update before Brighton
Given the fact that Bowen only signed for West Ham late last night, you would assume that he won’t be playing any part in their upcoming tie vs Brighton on Saturday afternoon.
But one new addition who could feature vs Brighton is Tomas Soucek.
Speaking in his pre-Brighton press conference, David Moyes stated that he is going to have the midfielder involved vs the Seagulls:
“We’re just trying to weigh up where he is. Obviously I’m going to have him involved tomorrow, but I think it could be a bit quick for him. We’ll assess that.” As quoted by West Ham’s official website.
Moyes would also provide an update on Felipe Anderson, confirming that the Brazilian is on the grass, but not quite ready to feature at the moment:
“The likes of Felipe Anderson are on the grass at the moment, but not quite ready at this moment in time.” As quoted by West Ham’s official website.
