Curbs' Second Signing

The highly rated 23 year old midfielder put pen to paper on a 5 year contract on Sunday morning. He had been tracked by AS Roma and Rangers, the latter of which he had agreed terms with until West Ham came in with a late bid of 9 million euros.

Faubert becomes the second addition to the squad after Scott Parker. Eggert Magnusson told whufc.com:

"I am delighted to welcome Julien to Upton Park and feel sure that he will become a very successful signing for the Club.

"He is one of the most highly-rated young players in European football and many clubs were attempting to sign him, so we are very pleased that he has decided to join West Ham United.
