West Ham signs US defender George John

BY foxsports • January 13, 2012

West Ham has signed American defender George John on a two-month loan from FC Dallas.

The second-tier London club says it has brought John to Upton Park ''with a view to a permanent signing.''

John says on West Ham's website that he wants to ''understand about English football and just adapt my game.''

John hasn't played a competitive match since Oct. 26, saying it could ''take two or three weeks to give me some time to develop and get back in the swing of things.''
