Hammers sign Icelandic defender

West Ham have signed Iceland Under-21 defender Holmar Orn Eyjolfsson on a long-term contract from HK Kopavogur.

The 17-year-old, who is the son of former Icelandic international Eyjolfur Gjafar Sverrison, had a week-long trial with the Hammers last season.

"It is my dream to play in England so that outweighs any apprehension I had about moving here," he said.

Meanwhile, 18-year-old Czech goalkeeper Marek Stech has signed a new five-year contract with the club.
