Confirmed: West Ham clinch striker deal after paperwork finalised
By London correspondent Tony Hughes
Jordan Brown has taken to Instagram to reveal he has completed a transfer from West Ham to Hannover 96.
The 19-year-old striker was a regular for the London club’s development side in the Under-21s Premier League in the recently completed domestic season.
He also also made his senior debut for the Irons in a Europa League match against Romanian side Astra Giurgiu at the start of the 2015-16 season.
However, Brown, who has scored eight goals in 26 matches for West Ham’s Under-21s, was unable to make an impression on Slaven Bilic’s squad and has now opted to make the move to Germany.
Hannover struggled last season, finishing rock bottom of the Bundesliga and will play in the second tier in 2016-17.
