Un Portero Por Otro Bob Replaces Aide As Back Up

Hammers have neatly arranged a 'spanish take over' as back up between the sticks, Roberto, 33, will join them on a two-year contract on July 1, once his deal with La Liga club Espanyol expires, he will replace Adrian San Miguel. Many, many Hammers fans will be sad to see Adrian leave the club, and rightly so, he was a stalwart as custodian but was usurped by Lukasz Fabianski.

Essentially Adrian is too good to be a back up keeper, he bided his time this season hoping that Fabianski would have a bad performance or loss of form, alas it was not to be. Having already had to 'see' off Darren Randolph and Joe Cole, Adrian had hoped to cement his position, but along came Fabianski who was just that little bit better, and that'little bit' can mean the difference between defeat and victory in the unforgiving 'battlefield' that is the Barclays Premier League.

Roberto is well known to Mario Husillos, Hammers head of recruitment, and is willing to play cup games and be available should Fabianski get injured, have a loss of form or get suspended. Roberto's arrival will be the cue for Hammers young England keeper, 20 year old Nathan Trott to go out on loan to a championship side in order to continue his development in to the superb keeper he is destined to be. - Ed

The new keeper(s) if you include David Martin, are paid less combined than Adrian San Miguel was.
