WEST HAM have signed Sion’s Edim­il­son Fer­nan­des for £5.5mil­lion. The 20-year-old (right), an at­tack­ing mid­fielder who has played for Switzer­land’s Un­der-21 side, will sign a fouryear deal pend­ing a med­i­cal. Fer­nan­des is the cousin of ex-Manch­ester City mid­fielder Gel­son Fer­nan­des and played 26 times in the Swiss Su­per League last sea­son, scor­ing once.

He also played against Liver­pool in the Europa League last Oc­to­ber.

Ham­mers boss Slaven Bilic has moved for Fer­nan­des to deepen his mid­field op­tions, with Alex Song hav­ing left the club and sev­eral sides in Italy keen on Pe­dro Obiang.
