Burnley complete signing of West Ham striker Zavon Hines
England under-21 striker Zavon Hines has completed his move to Burnley.
The Jamaican-born forward was offered a new contract with West Ham, but, apparently on the advice of his agent, refused to sign.
Hines was subsequently on a week-to-week contract with the Hammers before agreeing a move to Burnley.
Clarets boss Eddie Howe had previously shown an interest in Hines, having unsuccessfully tried to sign the striker on loan last season.
After being told that he was free to leave the club by West Ham boss Sam Allardyce, the 22-year-old has signed for the Lancashire outfit following a successful medical yesterday.
