On what was a busy transfer deadline day for West Ham United, the Hammers secured the services of the Colombian midfielder, Carlos Sanchez.

Sanchez was signed on a two-year deal from the Italian club, Fiorentina.

The holding midfielder arrives at West Ham United with a strong international pedigree having won 88 caps for his country.

Talking to the media after the deal had been done and dusted, Sanchez is reported by the BBC, as having remarked;

“I decided to come here because, first, it is the Premier League, second, it’s a beautiful club and the fans are always helping the club and, third, for me it’s an amazing opportunity and an amazing project.

As for the reaction to the signing of Sanchez, there were several threads welcoming him to our club;

To us, here at Vital West Ham, it’s an interesting signing. The player has previous experience of playing in England, with Aston Villa, but at 32-years-of-age, you have to question whether he’s been brought in for midfield cover to bolster the squad, or whether Manuel Pellegrini sees a role for him in the first team, personally, I think it’s the former, but is that a view you concur with?
