Hammers complete Petric signing

FOOTBALL: West Ham have signed former Fulham striker Mladen Petric until the end of the season. The 32-year-old hit five goals in 23 appearances for the Cottagers last term. The Hammers moved for Petric following fears striker Andy Carroll faces a long lay-off after picking up a foot injury in training on Monday. Carroll is yet to feature since West Ham paid £15m to make his loan move from Liverpool permanent in the summer.
