West Ham have signed highly-rated striker Sam Baldock from MK Dons for an undisclosed fee.

The Hammers have captured the 22-year-old, who has scored six goals in as many appearances this season, on a four-year deal with the option for an additional year.

Baldock told West Ham TV: "I am so pleased to be here. I am just excited to be coming to such a great club, caked in so much history."

He added: "I just want to hit the ground running."

Sam Allardyce was one of several managers interested in securing Baldock's services and he revealed his delight at completing the deal.

"We are very excited and very pleased to acquire such a young, talented goal-scorer," he told the club's official site.

"I am sure he will go a long way and hopefully it will be an exciting time to help get West Ham where we want them to go."
