West Ham Sign O'Neil
West Ham have signed midfielder Gary O'Neil from Middlesbrough on a two-and-a-half year contract. Having signed today he will be eligible for Wednesday night's Carling Cup semi-final return at Birmingham City. As usual the fee is 'undisclosed'.
The official announcement from the West Ham official site also contains a nice little nugget at the end, reading,
"Thomas Hitzlsperger ... is now training fully with the club's reserve squad."
