Hernandez signs

Following weeks of speculation and rumour, Javier Hernandez has completed his move to West Ham.

The Mexican international put pen to paper on a three-year contract this afternoon after West Ham and Hernandez's former club, Bayer Leverkusen, agreed a fee in the region of £16million.

The 29-year-old striker, colloquially known as 'Chicharito' flew into London earlier today before undergoing a medical at the London Independent Hospital in Stepney Green which he passed with no complications.


"I am very happy to join West Ham United," he told whufc.com. "For me, the Premier League is the best league in the world and when the opportunity came, I was desperate to sign for this club.

"It was not a difficult decision. West Ham is an historic club, and very ambitious – this summer you can see with the players signed that they are looking to have a very good season.

“I’ve had three fantastic years playing in Spain and Germany, but England was really the first big chapter in my career and I am so happy to be back."
