Jaanai Gordon (r): Peterborough forward moving to West Ham

The 18-year-old frontman impressed during a recent trial period with the Hammers and will seal his switch from the League One club on Wednesday.

Sam Allardyce has only one striker available in Carlton Cole, with club-record signing Andy Carroll still a couple weeks away from a return.

Gordon, who made his first-team debut for the Posh last September at the age of 16, has made seven appearances for the London Road outfit.

He scored twice in the Hammers' Barclays U18 Premier League victory over Aston Villa, while also netting in first-team friendlies against Gillingham and Millwall during the November international break.

Recently Gordon notched the winner for Peterborough in the FA Youth Cup at Wolves, helping Posh to maintain their cup run.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
