No fanfare for Fonte

Former Hammers defender Jose Fonte has arrived in China - to something less that a hero's welcome.

The Portuguese international touched down in the Far East earlier today having agreed a ?5million move to Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang last week.

But pictures from local media reveal that Fonte's arrival was greeted by just ONE supporter keen to obtain his autograph - unlike a number of recent foreign arrivals, who have been mobbed by fans of their new clubs.

The 34-year-old's arrival was in stark contrast to that of former Hammer Carlos Tevez, who required the assistance of local police to guide him past throngs of well-wishers who had gathered to greet him at the airport last year.
