New signing Balint Bajner has called his move to West Ham 'a dream come true'.

The 17-year-old striker, currently on duty with Hungary in the under-19 European Championships said that he chose to move to England despite strong competition from some of Europe's biggest clubs.

"I was on trial at Lazio and Inter Milan but in May I had the chance to go to West Ham," he said.

"The atmosphere and conditions were great at all the places, but English football had the biggest affect on me.

"In my trial we won 5-1; I scored twice and had two assists. After this Liberty and West Ham agreed about my transfer."

Bajner is just one of a trio of foreign youngsters to join the Hammers in the past fortnight, alongside 17-year-old Holmar Orn Eyjolfsson (Iceland) and 15-year-old Pole Filip Modelski.
