Rufus Signs

West Ham have signed defender Rufus Brevett from Fulham for an undisclosed fee on a two and a half year contract.

"We are delighted to welcome Rufus to the club," says MD Paul Aldridge, confirming the deal.

The move - which saw the player having a medical at 5am today - means Rufus can go into the squad for the Liverpool game at the weekend.

He signed for Fulham under Kevin Keegan in 1998 from QPR for around £350,000.
