“He (Ramis) has passed his medical and it (the deal) is being concluded. It’s down to the influence of Roberto (Martinez) because the player doesn’t speak English and didn’t want to go to West Ham who had agreed a deal.
“But Roberto asked me to go out to Mallorca where I met their chairman and with the club in receivership they accepted my offer and then I went to see the player.”
Whelan has also insisted that the club hope to make another couple of signings before the opening League game against Chelsea in three weeks time.
