Paintsil Deal Sealed!

Paintsil, Painstil or Pantstil? Who knows - lets just hope he's not pants because he's signed a 4 year contract at West Ham. I must confess to seeing nothing of him during the world cup, and I've seen no preseason action but reports suggest he's done well during his trial at any rate enough to make Pardew put his hand in the coffers. A fee of approx 1m has been mooted which in the current mareket isn't too much.

I would expect him to be back up primarily to Mears but he can play anywhere along the back four according to reports. This now gives us pleanty of options at the back with Collins, Clarke, Spector and now Paintsil waiting in the wings to dislodge any one who drops in form or picks up an injury. This depth could be vital for our long season ahead.
