Dusan Kuciak Signs

WEST Ham United confirms the signing of Slovakian goalkeeper Dusan Kuciak from MSK Zilina on loan. The 19-year-old Slovakia Youth international, who represented his country at last year's European Under-19 Championships, has signed until the end of the season, but the Hammers have an option to make the deal permanent.

Alan Pardew said: "He's a young goalkeeper who has impressed us in training, and the deal gives us the opportunity to look at him until the end of the season.

"He's highly rated and has played for Slovakia at youth level, but this will be a different test for him and we'll just see what happens between now and the end of the season."
