JUST IN: West Ham sign Spartak Moscow midfielder Alex Kral 

Premier League side West Ham United has announced the signing of Alex Kral from Spartak Moscow. 

Kral joins the Hammers on an initial loan deal with an option to make it permanent. 

"West Ham United is delighted to announce the signing of Czech Republic international midfielder Alex Král," a statement from the club read. 

West Ham boss David Moyes said, “I am delighted to welcome Alex to West Ham United.” 

“He will provide good competition in the center of midfield. He is another young, talented player who we feel has a big potential and will be capable of adapting to the demands of the Premier League.

“We’ve brought him in on loan initially and, hopefully, over the course of the season he will make a valuable contribution, particularly with our busier schedule of fixtures.

“Alex is another established international player with the Czech Republic, and we hope he has similar characteristics and hunger to that of Tomas and Vladimir.”

Kral was part of the Czech Republic's squad for Euro 2020 alongside West Ham's Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal.
