Hammers seal Chadwick deal
West Ham new signing Luke Chadwick
Chadwick has swapped Burnley's claret and blue for West Ham
West Ham have completed the signing of midfielder Luke Chadwick on a free transfer from Manchester United.

The 23-year-old passed a medical on Monday and Hammers boss Alan Pardew is excited by the prospect of Chadwick playing in The Championship.

"I am delighted to have signed a player with great potential and I expect him to become an important and exciting member of our squad," said Pardew.

"He is a player the fans will enjoy watching," he told the club's website.

Hammers boss Alan Pardew took Chadwick on a loan spell while he was manager at Reading, and he spent last season on loan at Burnley.

Chadwick's arrival could pave the way for cash-strapped Hammers to sell midfielder Michael Carrick.
