That announcement vid. Wow. Did the young chap (not fornals) do this as part of his media degree? And will be dining out on this for years to come. Bit like Troy McClure from the simpsons. "You may remember me from such videos as Pablo Fornals signing"

Anyway, welcome Pablo. Looks good from the vids.

As posted in the Transfer Thread:

Villarreal receives offers upwards for Fornals and Pedraza
Meanwhile, West Ham has increased the initial offer presented to the yellow entity, which was around 20 million euros, and finally reach 25 million for the coffers of Villarreal, in addition to the aforementioned bonuses which could reach figures close to 28 or 29 million euros. The negotiation is very advanced and pending of the normal procedures of this type of transfers. The officiality of the pass from Fornals to West Ham is close.
In the issue that affects the future of Pablo Fornals, in addition to the clubs directly involved in the negotiations, two other Spanish teams are waiting for the agreement to be definitively closed. The transfer of Pablo Fornals to West Ham will mean a good economic injection for CD Castellón, club in which the midfielder militated for four seasons before joining the quarry of Málaga. The solidarity mechanism protects the clubs that train professional players and gives them percentages in cases of transfers between federations and in the first professional contract. Villarreal should pay albinegro club 1% of the sale, approximately € 250,000. Málaga will also receive around € 700,000. ... 27628.html" onclick=";return false;

"I know about the loyal fans and the stadium, which is a beautiful stadium. The fans fill the stadium every weekend"

Always have to get it in.

Looks a good aquisition (purely based on a three minute YouTube video).

Agreed. Reminded me of a couple of companies I've worked for, where all the workers cringed at much of the output from the PR/Publicity departments. C'est la vie.

Very hopeful after what I have read about Pablo - great that a signing went under the radar - good business conducted in a professional manner - it's the new West Ham :scarfer:
