West Ham are understood to have signed 17-year-old Czech goalkeeper Vit Nemrava on an 18-month loan.
The young goalkeeper becomes the latest goalkeeper from the Czech Republic to move to east London and follows in the footsteps of former Hammers legend Ludek Miklosko and ex-reserve stopper Marek Stech.
Nemrava, who plays for FC Slovacko has been a regular member of the Republic's youth team squads spent time in London with the Hammers last December.
His current club's head coach, Vladimir Krejci, said: "We have agreed that West Ham will take him on loan until summer 2014 with an option to make the deal permanent.
"It's a big success for our club and the local college. It just does not happen too often that a player from here joins a team which plays in the Premier League."
