‘Better than Maradona’ – West Ham fans in delight on Twitter as club make January move

West Ham supporters in the Transfer Tavern are thrilled with the news that the club have announced the signing of Joao Mario on loan from Inter Milan.

The drinks have been in full flow here in the Transfer Tavern, following the announcement that the Hammers have secured the signing of the Euro 2016 star on loan from Serie A giants, Inter Milan. Sadly, the 25-year-old has struggled to make a meaningful impression during his time at Inter, and he has failed to score a single goal for the Italian team this season.

Nonetheless, the Portuguese midfielder was regarded as one of the best talents during his country’s triumphant Euro 2016 campaign. Additionally, the Irons’ supporters in the Tavern are hopeful that his arrival will alleviate the pressure that Manuel Lanzini shoulders to create opportunities for the Hammers.

Our resident West Ham fans have turned towards social media to express their delight with the club’s latest signing.
