West Ham sign Andriy Yarmolenko on four-year deal

West Ham sign Andriy Yarmolenko on four-year deal

Andriy Yarmolenko has left Borussia Dortmund after one season to sign a four-year contract with West Ham United, the club announced on Wednesday.

If Anderson is signed, he would become West Ham's sixth signing of the summer following the additions of Andriy Yarmolenko (£17.5m, Borussia Dortmund), Jack Wilshere (free), Ryan Fredericks (free), Lukasz Fabianski (£7m, Swansea) and Issa Diop (£22m rising to £25m, Toulouse).

Ukraine global Yarmolenko arrives at London Stadium for an undisclosed fee, reported to be £17.5 million (A$31.38 million), and has signed a four-year contract.

Yarmolenko has been getting to know his new surroundings over the past 24 hours, and took some time out to sit down and discuss the man he'll be playing under next season. However, I think Manuel Pellegrini is the flawless coach for Andriy and his style of play.

He said: "I am very happy to sign for West Ham United".

"I know I am the fifth player to arrive at West Ham this summer".

Croatian Players Break into Song on Team Bus
We know there is more to come from this England team'. "[France] President Emmanuel Macron came down to see us". Celebrations again will go deep into the night back in Croatia, but the players also were not holding back.

The team wants to achieve high things and I am excited for this challenge.

"Of course, for any footballer, it is better to play in big matches".

"I will be trying to make our supporters as happy as possible".

West Ham are reportedly hoping to bolster their ranks further with a £40 million (A$71.73 million) move for Lazio playmaker Felipe Anderson.

Together they are all working to build a new project, and it will be interesting to see now if the Chilean can get these quality players to gel.
