West Ham agree deal for Serbia U19 striker Luka Belic - sources
West Ham have agreed a deal to sign highly rated Serbian forward Luka Belic on a free transfer, sources have told ESPN FC.
Belic, 19, is a free agent after seeing out his contract at OFK Belgrade earlier this summer.
The talented forward was the youngest player ever to make his debut in the Serbian Premier League at the age of 16 in 2012 and is regarded as one of the best prospects in Serbia after catching the eye for club and country in the last 18 months.
Belic has played for Serbia at under-17 and U19 level and is tipped to make the step-up to the senior team in the near future.
A number of clubs across Europe have been keeping tabs on him, but sources told ESPN FC that West Ham have moved to lure him to Upton Park.
Belic holds a Belgian passport so will not require a work permit to make the move to England and he is likely to be brought into the club's youth setup before trying to break into Slaven Bilic's first-team plans.
