Calleri deal complete

Young striker Jonathan Calleri has completed his move to West Ham United.

Last week Slaven Bilic confirmed that the 22-year-old Argentinian was on his way to the club. And his imminent arrival was confirmed this afternoon by Jack Sullivan, posting via his Twitter account.

"Calleri has signed on a season long loan," he wrote. "However he needs International clearance before he can play, which takes a few days."

Speaking last week, Bilic confirmed he was expecting Calleri to arrive just as soon as his country were eliminated from the OlympiC Games.

"They didnít pass the group stage so he should be here with us Ė not today, not tomorrow, but pretty soon, depending on work permit," he said.

"We did the deal not a long time ago but not yesterday. He is a top striker."

Although Calleri signed too late to feature against Chelsea, and is not registered to play against Astra in the next stage of the Europa League, he could make his West Ham debut against Bournemouth this weekend.
