Hammers Signing

Auckland-born Winston Reid, 22, who scored the memorable last-minute equaliser for New Zealand at the World Cup against Slovakia, has signed a three-year contract with English Premier League club West Ham United for an undisclosed sum. “It has been a mad couple of weeks and the last couple of days have been pretty hectic, so I am just happy to be here now,” Reid told the club website. Reid, who lived in Denmark as a child, has been a regular in the Danish First Division for the last two years, being linked with a move to Italy’s Serie A and playing in both legs of Midtjylland’s Uefa Cup penalty shoot-out loss to Manchester City in August 28. Reid made his debut for New Zealand in May this year.
