West Ham announced via their official site: "West Ham United are pleased to announce the signing of Ivory Coast international Abdul Razak on a short-term contract.

"The 21-year-old is a highly-rated midfielder who began his career with Manchester City and most recently played for Russian Premier League side Anzhi Makhachkala."


Razak made his senior debut for Manchester City in 2011 under then-manager Roberto Mancini, featuring against West Brom.

However, fierce competition for places at the Etihad Stadium soon forced the Ivorian to move on and he headed to Russia.

He made seven Russian Premier League appearances for Anzhi this term, along with four starts in the club's Europa League campaign.
