West Ham clinch Obinna deal
Friday 27 August 2010
West Ham have added Nigeria international Victor Obinna to their ranks on a season-long loan deal.
Obinna, 23, joins from European champions Inter Milan having spent last season on loan with Spanish side Malaga.
He becomes the club's sixth signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Thomas Hitzlsperger, Tal Ben Haim, Winston Reid, Pablo Barrera and Frederic Piquionne.
The Hammers' deal for Obinna includes an option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.
Obinna made two appearances for Nigeria in the 2010 World Cup, where the Super Eagles failed to get out of a group containing Argentina, South Korea and Greece.
He joined Inter in the summer of 2008 from another Italian club, Chievo.
