On the same day that Uefa accused him of “an act of serious assault” and banned him for six European games, Bowyer rendered the ban useless by signing for West Ham.

Speaking on the West Ham website ‘Loveable Lee’ had this to say:

“There were a few clubs that came in but West Ham was the most appealing to me. I said when I was to leave Leeds it was going to take something special - and there's nothing more special than coming to the team you have supported as a kid. I am following my heart.”

It’s a match made in heaven.
