Yarmo hunting 'slab head' prankster [video]

The hunt is on for a mystery prankster after pictures of a square-headed Andriy Yarmolenko were hung in the players' changing room following yesterday's goalless draw against Chelsea.

The Ukrainian international was guilty of missing a golden opportunity to score with a header against Chelsea late on in yesterday's derby, having failed to find the target despite being completely unmarked just six yards from goal.

And even though Yarmo's glaring miss may potentially have cost the Hammers two vital Premier League points, as the match ultimately ended goalless, his team mates could at least see the funny side of things.

For when Yarmolenko arrived in the changing room for training this morning, he was met by photoshopped pictures of his face on a square head - no doubt as a not-too-subtle swipe at his failure to convert the chance.

During the following video, as published on twitter by the Ukrainian, the 28-year-old is heard asking club captain Mark Noble "why did you do this?" - to which a clearly amused Noble denies any responsibility. Enjoy...
