West Ham United sign Portuguese defender Gonçalo Cardoso



West Ham United are delighted to announce the signing of highly-rated Portuguese defender Gonçalo Cardoso for an undisclosed fee.

The Hammers beat off competition from a number of top European clubs to complete the transfer of the 18-year-old centre-back from Primeira Liga club Boavista on a five-year contract with an option to extend for a further year.

Cardoso, who started 15 league games last season and was part of the Portugal side which finished runners-up at the 2019 UEFA European U19 Championship finals in July, is looking to take his game to the next level at London Stadium.

"I am very excited and it’s a dream come true," said the teenager, who will wear the No20 shirt.

"I always dreamt of coming to England and now I’m here at this big, historic club, so I’m very happy.

"I’m an aggressive player, a little bit different on the pitch than off it. I’m calm, and I like to have the ball and build the game from the back.

"I’m here to work and to help the team reach their goals."

There's nothing wrong with taking a punt on a promising talent at that price. Nothing wrong at all. We'll get our money back OR sell at a profit OR he'll be a great buy for us.

Great signing.

It is surprising we got him for that price, to ignorant me, at least.

He was linked with a bunch of clubs in January when he was starting regularly.

Good luck to the club for taking a punt. Let’s hope the lad has a better attitude and application than the likes of Morrison and Oxford. And let’s hope that he trains through developing into a first team regular.

Did we “beat some of Europe’s top clubs” to the signing? The OS love chucking that line out when we get someone.

Cheap as chips prospect. Low risk, I suppose. Seems highly thought of.

Welcome, Portugeezer!

COYI!

With today’s valuations, this is a good buy, with fairly low risks.
An experienced member of the Portugal U23 squad; and they are a good U23 side: he seems a very good prospect.

We could potentially have an 18, 19 and 22 year old in our defence at the same time.

That's promising and scary in equal measures.

He looks a decent passer, so I would hope for the latter.

Of course it could be crap. I'm sure he could adapt to LB as he's only 18. he might end up being another Declan Rice and end up playing DM.
