West Ham complete £38m signing of Kudus from Ajax

West Ham have completed the signing of midfielder Mohammed Kudus from Ajax.

Kudus has signed a five-year contract, with the option of a further 12 months, after completing his medical over the weekend.

The deal is understood to be worth around £38m (€44.5m) including add-ons.

West Ham will pay an initial €41.5m (£35.59m) and €3m (£2.57m) in performance-related add-ons.

An unnamed Premier League club made a late bid to sign Kudus on Saturday, but his mind was made up to join the Hammers.

"I've been dreaming to play in a league like this since I was a kid," said Kudus, who will wear the No 14 shirt at West Ham.

"I've been dreaming of this moment and I'm so happy to be here. But it doesn't stop here, I want to keep going.

"I try my best to entertain the fans as I think that's what football is all about. I'm just here to do my best and help the team. I'm really happy to be here. I will fight for the badge. I can't wait to get started."
