OFFICIAL: Jarrod Bowen signs for West Ham United


Jarrod bowen signs for West Ham United

Jarrod Bowen has officially signed for West Ham United on a five-and-a-half-year contract earning £50,000 per week, having completed his £25m move from Hull City at 11pm on Deadline Day. Bowen has been one of the most wanted men from the Championship this season, having bagged 17 goals in all competitions thus far for the Tigers.

The 23-year-old has been by a distance the best player for Hull in the second tier, scoring 10 more goals than second-placed top scorer Kamil Grosicki. In truth, without Bowen, Hull could well be in the midst of a relegation scrap, rather than remaining in their slump at mid-table.

What does this mean for West Ham?

The Hammers are in dire need of some sort of form, somewhere on the pitch. From one to 11, goalkeeper to attack, they are struggling. They are in such dire straits that David Moyes has had to rejoin the club and even bring back Darren Randolph between the sticks.

At the start of the season, West Ham were one of the teams in contention to test the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Arsenal and Manchester United for a place in Europe. Now, ahead of their clash against Brighton, they are 17th, level on points with relegation-sitting Bournemouth and Watford on 23 points

In truth, only six teams have scored fewer goals in the Premier League thus far and Bowen can certainly help change this fortune. With his 55 goals in the past two-and-a-half seasons, the tricky, left-footed forward is surely going to be a worthwhile addition.

When will he play?

It's doubtful that the London Stadium faithful will be see Bowen on their grass when they face Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday. The Hammers host the Seagulls at 3pm tomorrow, which will surely make it near enough impossible for the former Hull man to start. He could, however, find himself on the bench, perhaps.

Up next after hosting Brighton, is the trip to the Etihad, before they visit Anfield. In reality, there are not tougher fixtures in the English calender to contend with, so it will be some introduction to Premier League football for him.

Chances are, if he does not start against Manchester City, he will against Liverpool, as there is a winter break in between the two fixtures.
