West Ham have announced the £1million signing of Ghana's World Cup right-back John Pantsil from Israeli club Hapoel Tel Aviv.Completion of the transfer is now subject to Pantsil beng granted a work permit - but that is not expected to be a stumbling block.Looks like WHU is getting cover/competition across the back line. Pantsil on the right with Mears pressing for that spot. Konchesky on the left, with Spector as cover there as well as probably being the 4th option at center back behind Gabbidon, Ferdinand, and Collins.
