Dobson dumps Gunners for Hammers

West Ham have completed the signing of young Arsenal midfielder George Dobson.

The 17-year-old has been on trial at Chadwell Heath since June and finally completed a move to West Ham earlier today.

"I am over the moon to have signed," Dobson told whufc.com. "I've been a West Ham fan since I was five years old and this is a surreal moment; a dream come true for me.

"I had ten great years with Arsenal and they helped me as a footballer and as a person, but the time is right to move and I cannot wait to get started.

"It was a no-brainer for me. There are lots of opportunities here and you have just got to take them. I know I will have to work hard.

"Terry Westley is a great guy and has shown a lot of interest in me. That is really important for a young person and I am looking forward to working under him."
