West Ham snap up promising youngster

Highly-rated Swedish youngster Rinor Nushi is on his way to West Ham.

The 17-year-old, who is considered to be one of Sweden's brightest young talents and recently visited London for a trial will join the Hammers this weekend having agreed terms with the club.

Speaking to fotbolltransfers.com, Nushi - who joins from Stockholm-based AFC United - said: "It feels surreal, I've dreamed about this since childhood. I have not really got my head round it yet.

"I want to thank Hamid Kavodvand [AFC United's sporting director] for all the years he has trained and developed me. I would not be the player I am without him.

"I also want to thank Alex Russian Holm [AFC's Chairman] who has helped me tremendously, both with the economic part and on the pitch. He has been like a father to me.

"Everything was perfect when I visited West Ham. The players were nice, the facilities were perfect, the house, everything. After the first day, I felt that thrived very well."

Meanwhile Lavodvand told AFC's website: "Nuri enjoyed his time at West Ham and it was unlikely that we could keep him at AFC United, given how talented he is."

Nushi is the second youngster to be snapped up by West Ham this week following confirmation of the arrival of young goalkeeper Vit Nemrava.
