West Ham United have reportedly completed the signing of Mesaque Dju on a free transfer from Benfica.

The 19-year-old joins the Hammers on a free transfer from Portuguese outfit Benfica after agreeing terms on a three-and-a-half-year contract.

Dju is regarded as a player for the future by West Ham and will initially link-up with the team’s Under-23 squad.

He said, according to talkSPORT: “I know a lot about West Ham because it is a very big club in England and helps young players get to the first team.”

Pellegrini is not happy after West Ham’s draw

The Hammers were leading 2-1 up to the last minute of today's English Premier League match but ended up tying 2-2 at the end.

“I want this and I’m working for this. I want to help the team and I want to score a lot of goals for this team.”

Meanwhile, West Ham striker Marko Arnautovic has committed his immediate future to the club after being linked with a move away.

The Austria international was the subject of interest from teams in China, but has opted to stay with the Hammers until at least the end of the season.
