West Ham have signed promising defender Doneil Henry from Apollon Limassol on a long-term deal, reports Sky
“This lad definitely has Premier League potential, and with a little coaching from us and work in terms of how to defend in the Premier League, (Henry) has all the attributes to be a good player. We have invested in him for the near future, so we hope he can settle in,” said West Ham manager Sam Allardyce.
Henry, a self-confessed combative-minded defender, had played for Toronto FC under former manager Ryan Nelson. Allardyce and Nelson know each other well from their time at Blackburn, and spoke to the ex-defender about Henry’s potential. He was offered to the London club, and could well push for an appearance before the end of the season.
