The Daily Mail has reported that Joao Mario has completed his medical for Premier League side, West Ham.

The club and player are now getting ready to sign the contract to complete the loan to West Ham. The Daily Mail managed to find Joao Mario in London where the Portuguese midfielder smiled and gave a thumbs up to the present reporters.

All that is left is to sign the papers, making the loan agreement official. The deal is reported to be a one and a half million euro loan with thirty million for the redemption of the player at the end of the season. He is projected to make his first appearance for the Hammers on Tuesday next week against Crystal Palace as it is unlikely that he will play Saturday in the FA Cup match against Wigan.

West Ham find themselves in the middle of the Premier League table, at 11th place. They will hope to improve with the signing of Joao Mario.
