West Ham Sign Hólmar?
West Ham have signed 17-year-old Icelandic centre-half Hólmar Örn Eyjólfsson according to the Icelandic press. The papers say that West Ham have agreed an undisclosed fee with Eyjólfsson's current club, HK Kópavogur.
In February Eyjólfsson spent a week on trial at West Ham. He also spent a week on trial at Hertha Berlin in August while Bayern Munich have also shown a keen interest in the player. At 17 years of age he is already a regular in the Iceland Under 21 squad.
Update: Having a quick skirt around some of the bulletin boards it appears that West Ham have made an offer. That offer has been rejected and Eyjólfsson's agent has made a counter offer. The deal is expected to be completed in the next couple of days.
