Who Are Ya? Raphael Spiegel (West Ham)
Your whistle-stop guide to the latest Premier League arrivals
Name: Raphael Spiegel
Signed from: Grasshoppers
Did you know?
Perfectly suited to the vanity of the Premier League, his surname translates as ‘mirror’.
What’s the deal?
The Swiss under 20 international has signed a three-year deal, with an option for an extra year.
The youngster is expected to initially find himself behind Jussi Jaaskelainen and Stephen Henderson in the Hammers’ pecking order. That’s a familiar position as he was third-choice at Grasshoppers too. But he clocked up a considerable amount of playing time playing for the second team in the third-tier of Swiss football and out on loan.
