West Ham United have completed the signing of 18 year old Swiss defender Fabio Daprela from Grasshoppers Zurich for an undisclosed fee. The Hammers beat off interest from several Italian sides to get their man, and he has agreed a five year contract at Upton Park. The player told www.whufc.com that ‘I am very happy to come here as it is a great club. I saw the team play on television last season and it is a very good team, they have a great manager and it is good to be here.’



 He also said that he wanted to compete for a place in the Irons first team and could not wait for the new season to start. Daprela has represented Switzerland at under 17 and 19 levels, most recently competing in the under 19 European Championships, and made 28 appearances during his time with Grasshoppers
