West Ham transfers: Diego Poyet hints that he is on the verge of completing a transfer to Upton Park

Diego Poyet has hinted that he is on the verge of completing a transfer to West Ham United.

The 19-year-old, who is the son of Sunderland manager Gus, is a free agent after being released by Charlton Athletic this summer.

All will be revealed in time. Thanks for the messages #COYI

The midfielder, who was named Charlton’s player of the year this term, has been linked with Sunderland, Chelsea and Manchester City in recent weeks.

However, Poyet now appears to be closing in on a move to Upton Park if his latest Twitter update is anything to go by, after he referenced ‘Come On You Irons’ as a hashtag in his latest tweet.

Poyet wrote: “Not ignoring everyone, crazy but exciting last few days. All will be revealed in time. Thanks for the messages #COYI”.

Poyet made 20 Championship appearances for Charlton Athletic last season as they finished ninth in the table.
