Video: West Ham Sign World No2 FIFA Player Sean ‘Dragonn’ Allen

Slaven Bilic certainly seems to have got his signings right on the pitch this season given West Ham’s current position.

The Hammers are in sixth place – just a point behind Manchester United – and realistically find themselves still in the hunt for the fourth Champions League spot.

But now the East London side are venturing into the realms of electronic sports with their latest capture in the transfer market.

The club has today announced the signing of the World’s No2-ranked FIFA player Sean ‘Dragonn’ Allen.

Allen was the runner up in the 2016 FIFA Interactive World Cup and will now represent the club at all official E-Sport events and tournaments.

This makes West Ham the first ever UK side to sign an E-Sports player to their club.

Allen has qualified for every ranking FIFA E-Sports event this year and will enter the Play Like A Legend Grand Final this Saturday at the Gfinity Arena in Fulham, where Allen will officially don the Claret and Blue for the first time.

And after receiving the No.50 jersey, he said: “I am delighted to be joining West Ham United as their official e-sports player.

“West Ham have had an astonishing season in the Premier League with Europe looking very likely for next season. I will be doing my very best in FIFA tournaments all around the world to emulate their success.”
