West Ham United have clinched the signing of Stockport County striker Danny Whitehead.

The youngster has penned a two-year deal.

Whitehead said: "I'm very excited to have joined West Ham and I can't wait to get out there and play.

"It's obviously a big step up, but I've got to take the opportunity and grasp it.

"I was on trial here at the end of last season and all the lads helped me fit in well during the two weeks of training I did.

"I've got a bit of experience from playing for the first team at Stockport - I'll probably be with the U21s here at the start and then try to push towards the first team."
