West Ham have signed 17-year-old hit-man Paul McCallum from Dulwich Hamlet.
McCallum has been a hit at Dulwich Hamlet this season and has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs.
“It feels unreal. I feel like I am dreaming,” McCallum told the club’s official website.
“I am expecting to wake up any minute. I am honoured to sign for West Ham and I feel great.
“The youth team at West Ham have got a great history and that is one of the reason why West Ham stood out more than the Chelseas and Arsenals. I know I made the right decision to come here. There is definitely a path here. It is a great set-up.”
“A lot of clubs were interested. At one point I think it was 14 clubs. I have just kept my head down and carried on working hard and here I am now.
“I have been on trial so I know everyone and like the way training is. I hope I can hit the ground running.
“The first team would be the dream. Hopefully one day, with some luck, the coaches can see what I can do and I get a chance.”
