“Personally, since the first day I arrived here in England, I always saw the big clubs and I always watched the big games and I knew the history of West Ham. The history is so, so big for this team and so when I knew about the interest for sure I said ‘Yes, let’s go, I want to go there’ and I’m here now!

“I can’t wait to get started in a West Ham shirt.”
