West Ham United have confirmed the signing of former Valencia teenager Toni Martinez.

As exclusively revealed on the KUMB Forum last month, the 18-year-old striker has agreed terms with West Ham with whom he has signed a three-year contract, which commences this summer.

Speaking to whufc.com, Martinez said that he was delighted top finally arrive in London. "For me, its a great opportunity and I hope to make the most of being at such a big club," he said.

I joined West Ham because of the progress that the club is making. The decision to come here was made because it is a brilliant opportunity to join an interesting club in the Premier League."

Martinez, who has traded the opportunity of featuring in Valencia's 55,000-capacity Mestalla Stadium for the Olympic Stadium added: "The prospect of playing in front of 60,000 people next year really catches my attention and it is a stadium that has so much history.

"I am hoping to be able to get the opportunity to do that and I hope that it will be soon."
