West Ham United have completed the signing of Hull City winger Jarrod Bowen on a five-and-a-half year contract.
Bowen has scored 16 goals in 29 appearances for the Tigers this season and it seemed like only a matter of time before a Premier League club took the plunge on one of the Championship's most prolific talents.

And it's West Ham who have moved quickest to get a transfer over the line, confirming the deal on Friday night.
The deal will come as no surprise having been reported earlier on Friday, and while a fee is yet to be confirmed it is expected to be worth £22m in total - £8m of which in the form of conditional add-ons.
He will add some much needed pace and firepower to a West Ham side who have struggled to unlock defences as of late, and sit outside the relegation zone only on goal difference for their efforts - something Moyes will be looking to improve upon over the course of his second spell in east London.
The arrival of Bowen, coupled with the earlier arrivals of Tomas Soucek and Darren Randolph, could prove critical in his efforts to do so.
