With Pierre Ekwah Elimby and Areola, we've signed two Clairefontaine graduates in a summer. That has to be a first

Well played Moyes and his team

He has clearly seen that whilst fabainski is a fantastic keeper he is getting on and needs replacing

Good quality replacement for when fab is missing and long term going forward

Officially French but he's our first Filipino player.

Hopefully we get Manny Pacquiao next.

Chuffed with this. He's a top notch keeper.

He's a real handful for attackers, and I feel he will provide crucial support to the defense. I see a couple of cups the horizon for sure now.

I just pray that we don’t sing his name to the tune of “Glad all over” (like man city did with Guardiola) . . . That would be insufferably annoying

If he’s taking the number 13, and his surname begins with an “A”, it can only be a good sign, right?
