Reid’s new teammate


West Ham United have continued to make moves in the transfer window, giving All Whites defender Winston Reid another talented new teammate. The east London club confirmed the signing of Austrian internatio­nal Marko Arnautovic on Sunday (NZ time). He becomes their fourth highprofil­e addition of the English summer, following Mexico striker Javier Hernandez, Argentina fullback Pablo Zabaleta and England goalkeeper Joe Hart - who has arrived on loan. The influx of new talent should help Reid and West Ham improve on last season’s 11th-place finish in the Premier League, with a return to the seventh place of 2015-16, and a spot in the Europa League, a realistic target.
