Wellington Paulista: On his way to West Ham

The 28-year-old is set to join Sam Allardyce's side on loan until the end of the season, with a view to a permanent deal.

Paulista has scored 19 goals this season for Cruzeiro and will add an extra striking option for Allardyce for the second half of the campaign.

Sky Sports understands that the player is due to arrive in England on Sunday to undergo a medical ahead of finalising his move.

Paulista does not require a work permit to move to the Premier League as he has an EU passport, so could figure immediately for the Hammers.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
