Hammers land Dixon

West Ham have confirmed the signing of young striker Terry Dixon.

The 19-year-old former Irish youth international, who received his first call-up to the full squad aged just 16 has joined the Hammers on a free transfer having worked closely with the club's medical team.

Dixon, who began his career with Tottenham was one of the most highly-rated players of his generation before a succession of injuries appeared to curtail his career.

However having working with Gianfranco Zola's medical team at Chadwell Heath for some months the club felt that Dixon had done enough to earn a conditional three-year contract.

"There isn't really a rush but I would like to try and get involved in the first team towards the end of the season," he told whufc.com.

"We'll see what happens as I'd like to get a few games under my belt for the reserves and then show the manager what I can do."
