West Ham United have moved to snap up a third goalkeeper within the space of just six months.

19-year-old Raphael Spiegel, a Swiss youth international has signed a three-year contract with the Hammers, joining Jussi Jaaskelainen and Stephen Henderson - who both signed permanent deals earlier in pre-season - at the club.

Effectively replacing the outgoing Marek Stech - who has joined Yeovil Town - and Peter Kurucz, who has been on trial with Crystal Palace, Spiegal has moved to London from Grasshoppers for an undisclosed fee.

Despite his tender years the youngster has already made 58 first team appearances in Switzerland's second and third tier for the Zurich club's reserve team and SC Bruhl.
