Clive Clarke signs
West Ham have signed Irish left-back Clive Clarke from Stoke City for £275,000. The 25-year-old has a single ROI cap under his belt (or should I say, on his head), and can also play in midfield or central defence.
So Pardew has signed another fairly versatile player. Is it my imagination or is he deliberately going for this kind of player? Are we going to see Total Football at Upton Park? Anyway, we now have cover for all outfield positions (Collins can play as a forward), although a striker should still be Pardew's priority.
