Academy star completes Rotterdam move

West Ham midfielder George Dobson has completed a permanent move to Sparta Rotterdam.

The 19-year-old had been at West Ham for just two years since moving from Arsenal in the summer of 2015, and is set to join the Dutch club for an undisclosed fee.

Sparta head coach, Alex Pastoor, admitted that he was delighted to get the transfer over the line. "George is an all-round midfielder and despite his young age, he looks at his game already quite mature," he said.

"Last season West Ham United loaned him to Walsall for whom he played more than 20 games in League One. We welcome his arrival and he will join tomorrow's [Monday's] training. "

Dobson, who failed to make a single appearance for Slaven Bilic's first team during his spell in east London has signed a two-year contract with the Eredivisie outfit who finished last season's campaign in 15th place, avoiding relegation by virtue of superior goal difference.
