Declan Rice posts four-word reaction after West Ham United make deadline day signing
West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice couldn’t help but laugh after another Czech Republic international was brought to the London Stadium yesterday.
West Ham announced the signing of Alex Kral from Spartak Moscow and his arrival was confirmed by a couple of familiar faces.
Both Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal joined in with the announcement video.
And Rice couldn’t resist but make a joke after West Ham signed another of Soucek and Coufal’s international teammates.
Third time lucky?
In fairness it is hardly surprising that West Ham have gone back to shopping in the Czech Republic.
Soucek and Coufal have both proven to be wonderful signings for the Hammers and the hope is that Kral can turn out to be similarly effective.
The midfielder is known for his box to box style and he should add competition for places in David Moyes’ line-up.
Kral may have to wait a while before he becomes a permanent starter at West Ham though.
Moyes has built his side around the talents of Rice and Soucek in midfield and it seems unlikely that he will break up their strong partnership any time soon.
