Seven up


Filed: Wednesday, 16th August 2017

Marko Arnautovic has been granted special dispensation by the Premier League to change his squad number.

The Austrian international initially took the #27 shirt upon signing for West Ham last month, which he wore in United's 4-0 thrashing at Old Trafford last weekend.

However the departure of Sofiane Feghouli has since freed up the #7 shirt and the Premier League have ratified an application by West Ham to change Arnautovic's squad number.

The change was made at the behest of the Austrian international, who has previously worn the #7 shirt for Werder Bremen and his national team.

West Ham United have since promised to replace any replica shirts bearing Arnautovic's name that feature his old squad number. He follows the likes of Christian Dailly, Ian Bishop and Liam Brady, who have all previously worn the shirt.
