West Ham manager Slaven Bilic
West Ham wrapped up the signing of youngster Domingos Quina, the club announced via their official website on Wednesday.
The teenager had previously been on Chelsea's books, but elected to move on and sign with the Hammers instead, where he hopes to get a more direct route to first team football.
The club have high hopes for Quina, and this was evidenced by a tweet sent by Dave Sullivan, son of co-owner David Sullivan.
He posted a picture of Quina in action, hailing the deal as potentially the best acquisition they will make this summer in the long-term.
Also looking long term we may have made the biggest signing of our window already ... pic.twitter.com/MfCjdXA2xm— DAVE SULLIVAN JNR (@DaveSulley) May 25, 2016
With West Ham keen to add several new faces this summer, that is quite some billing for Quina to attempt to live up to, but at this early stage there is no reason to write him off.

Hammers under-21 coach Terry Westley compared him to a young Manuel Lanzini when speaking to the official website, which itself is recognition of the talent he possesses, describing the signing as 'potentially massive.'
