West Ham have completed the signing of Bermudan goalkeeper Nathan Trott.

The highly-rated 16-year-old has signed a two-and-a-half year contract with the Hammers, tying him to the club until the end of the 2017/18 season.

Talking to West Ham's website, Trott - who was recommended to the club by fellow countryman and Hammers legend Clyde Best - revealed that he has already worked with the first team squad during his recent trial.

"I came here for a trial a few months ago and I knew during my second week here that West Ham were interested," he said. "The coaches at the Academy have made it very easy to settle in and so have the players, they’re very friendly.

"I've had a few training sessions with the first team which was really exciting, you have to work hard! It was a great experience, it was scary at first, I was pretty nervous but I got used to it and will hopefully do it again soon."

"He's a very bright prospect and a very positive player," said Terrors manager manager Mixu Paatelainen. "He will be ready for next week."
