The 19-year-old midfielder, son of Sunderland manager Gus, is a graduate of the Charlton academy and was voted Player of the Year last season despite only making his debut in January.

Charlton will be due compensation for Poyet as he is the under age of 24, with a tribunal settling the fee. 

West Ham have already signed Mauro Zarate, Cheikhou Kouyate and Aaron Cresswell this summer.

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.
