West Ham's 25 Man Squad Named
West Ham have confirmed the signing of right back Lars Jacobsen from Blackburn and Belgian goalkeeper Ruud Boffin from Dutch side MVV Maastricht.
Boffin, 22 years old, has been signed on a 2 year contract and Jacobsen has signed a one year contract.
Both players have been named in West Ham's 25 man squad for the season. One player I thought, until yesterday, that wouldn't make the squad was Behrami. Behrami had spoken about his wife's difficulties in settling in London and looked a cert to be sold. However Sky are reporting that West Ham and Roma couldn't finalise an agreement before the deadline.
Sky are suggesting that Behrami will probably move on in January but he has been named in West Ham's 25 man squad for this season (presumably because of the January transfer window some changes can be made to the squad at that time).
