West Ham United have this afternoon confirmed that former Walsall loanee George Dobson has joined Dutch club Sparta Rotterdam, for an undisclosed fee.

19-year-old Dobson, who made twenty-six appearances during a season-long spell with the Saddlers, was believed to be among Walsall manager Jon Whitney's transfer targets as he looks to strengthen his squad ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

George, who has penned a two-year deal with De Kasteelheren, joined West Ham from Arsenal in July 2015 and quickly became an integral part of Terry Westley's U21 squad. He played a key role as the team won the Premier League Cup in May 2016 and was set for a big campaign in the Hammers' development side.
