George John's agent says that there will be an announcement with regards to his client's future later today.

Ted Philipakos, who has been representing the American defender in London during recent negotiations with West Ham United posted the message via his Twitter feed some moments ago. "Look for announcement today re USMNT and FC Dallas defender George John move #YanksAbroad," read the message.

The 24-year-old central defender currently plays for FC Dallas in the Major League Soccer (MLS) but has been in London for the past few days for talks with West Ham, as revealed here on KUMB earlier in the week.

With those talks having progressed without a hitch - and with the player having already received a work permit - John is expected to be confirmed as Sam Allaydyce's first signing of the winter transfer window imminently.
