The young striker rejected a contract at Stamford Bridge as he saw his prospects of first team football very limited. The Hammers were quick to snap him up on a five-year-deal.
Hammers CEO Scott Duxbury was delighted with the capture. “I am very pleased to be able to welcome Frank to West Ham where he will have the opportunity to compete for a place in Gianfranco’s first-team squad,” he told the official site.
“He has a very bright future and we will give him every chance to succeed. This is an excellent signing for the club.”
