By Greg Stobart

Arsenal youngster Henri Lansbury has joined West Ham on loan until the end of the season, can confirm.

The 20-year-old midfielder has joined the Championship club after Scott Parker left for Spurs in a £5 million deal.

Lansbury had also been linked with Fulham and Wolves over the summer. He has had spells on loan at Norwich and Watford in the last two seasons.

The England Under-21 international will join Papa Bouba Diop at Upton Park after the Senegalese midfielder joined on a 12-month loan deal yesterday.

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is hoping Lansbury will not be the last signing on deadline day and also wants to secure a loan move for Spurs misfit David Bentley.
