Chelsea's official website has confirmed that West Ham have accepted their 4.5m offer for teenage defender Glen Johnson.

The Blues confirmed this morning (Thursday) that the Hammers have accepted the deal tabled by the West London outfit, which is thought to be 4.5m up front plus another 1.5m to follow after a certain number of appearances.

In addition West Ham are expected to be able to retain the services of Johnson for the coming season - a factor which is thought to have been vital in the deal.

The news will no doubt anger the majority of Hammers fans, who saw Johnson as an integral part of any future team.

West Ham are yet to comment officially on the news. We'll have more on this story as it happens ...
