LONDON, ENGLAND (AP) – West Ham has signed American defender George John on a two-month loan from FC Dallas.

The second-tier London club says it has brought John to Upton Park “with a view to a permanent signing.”

John says on West Ham’s website that he wants to “understand about English football and just adapt my game.”

John hasn’t played a competitive match since Oct. 26, saying it could “take two or three weeks to give me some time to develop and get back in the swing of things.”
