Irish talent Maguire signs with Hammers



West Ham signed Republic of Ireland Under-19 striker Sean Maguire from Waterford United on Thursday.

Maguire agreed a two-and-a-half-year contract with the Premier League club after catching the eye with his performances in the Irish league.

The 18-year-old finished joint top scorer in the League of Ireland second tier in 2012 and his goals helped Waterford gain promotion to the top-flight.

Maguire, who scored 13 goals in 24 appearances, told West Ham TV: "In 2011 the Waterford manager brought me in for a couple of training sessions and gave me a chance in the first team and I took it. Here I am now at West Ham and it's a dream come true really.

"People tend to say my best trait is my movement so hopefully I can show that here.

"I haven't been told yet which squad I will be in but I presume I'll be going into the reserves so I'll try to work my way up like I did at Waterford."
