West Ham United are set to sign 15-year-old Pole Filip Modelski.
Top second in Arka history
The young defender, 16 later this year was also said to be interesting Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool but opted to join the Hammers after spending a week on trial in London at the start of July, according to the website of his former club, Arka Gdynia. The fee for Modelski is undisclosed but Arka are claiming it to be one of the most lucrative sales in their history. Modelski is the third foreign youngster to join the Hammers since the end of last season following on from the capture of Holmar Orn Eyjolfsson (Iceland) and Balint Bajner (Hungary). Whilst United are yet to announce any major signings during this transfer window – making them one of only six Premier League clubs yet to do so – the signigs are a clear indication of the club’s transfer policy as outlined at the end of last season.
