Former Emerald City FC player George John joins one of London’s storied football clubs, West Ham United, on loan from FC Dallas. John continues an Emerald City FC connection with West Ham now joining the likes of our very own Bobby Howe, ECFC Director of Coaching Emeritus who played for West Ham for 10 years.

Last season George John was rumored to be signing for Sam Allardyce and Blackburn Rovers but a deal could not be agreed upon by the MLS. This season Sam Allardyce, who now is the manager of West Ham, brings John with him as he wheels and deals in the January transfer window.
