Ruddock said: "I am really excited to be here. I feel happy inside and I am just hoping for the best for the future.

"The club's commitment to young players did attract me. It is good at West Ham because a lot of young players have come through and gone on to do good things."

West Ham beat off competition from Arsenal, Tottenham and QPR to land the highly-rated prodigy in a deal which could rise to around £200,000.
