Vladi - Now a Hammer
Vladi is now officially a Hammer, and will wear the Number 5 shirt last worn by Igor Stimac in the 2000/2001 season.

He passed last night's medical with flying colours, and the £900,000 move was sealed early this morning by West Ham and Sparta Prague.

Labant is now available to Glenn Roeder for selection in his squad to face Leicester tomorrow at Upton Park, although it is fairly unlikely that he will start due to him not having played for a while.

Sparta's season started their mid season break before Christmas, around a month ago now, and he hasn't played since then. Expect him to make the becnh though.
