Anang set to feature in Bremen test

Teenage goalkeeper Joseph Anang is set to play for West Ham against Werder Bremen in the first of two friendlies later this afternoon.

The 19-year-old is awaiting international clearance ahead of completing a move to West Ham but should feature at some stage in one of the two friendlies to be played against the Bundesliga side this weekend, having been named on the bench for tonight's match.

Anang has spent most of the summer in England seeking to impress and has done enough to earn a permanent deal. He will effectively replace Raphael Spiegel as the club's third-choice goalkeeper, behind Adrian and fellow new arrival Joe Hart.

Slaven Bilic has confirmed that all 22 players named should feature in this afternoon's clash, with both teams' starting XI set to be entirely replaced on the hour mark.

West Ham Utd - from: Adrian, Hart, Anang, Matrevics, Byram, Zabaleta, Cresswell, Masuaku, Collins, Ogbonna, Fonte, Reid, Burke, Rice, Makasi, Lanzini, Snodgrass, Obiang, Noble, Fernandes, Cullen, Holland, Arnautovic, Ayew, Martinez
