West Ham United have completed the signing of Birmingham City midfielder Reece Brown on a one-month loan. He joined the club on trial yesterday but has officially signed for a month before deciding to make it permanent.

Although the news has yet to be officially confirmed by either club, West Ham co-owner David Gold revealed on Twitter this morning that Brown is now a Hammer. He isn’t expected to contest for a place in the first team, but shall remain training and playing with the development squad, who are coached by Terry Westley.

Yesterday we covered the story regarding a potential trial move for Brown after a featured in a recent Under-21 match for the Premier League outfit. He lined up alongside former Barcelona and Arsenal man Alex Song in the centre of midfield, and impressed.

The 19-year-old, who was born in Dudley, has been making a name for himself on the international scene with the England Under-20 side in recent times. Last season he enjoyed a brief loan spell and gathered a taste of first-team football with Notts County. However his spell was cut short because of injury.

He is clearly a youngster with a very bright future and the fact he doesn’t have much first-team football under his belt, but has still managed to earn a loan move to a Premier League club can only be viewed as a major positive for his future development.
