Andriy Yarmolenko: West Ham sign Ukraine worldwide winger from Borussia Dortmund

Felipe Anderson

West Ham have completed the signing of Borussia Dortmund winger Andriy Yarmolenko.

"We are very happy to welcome Andriy", West Ham director of football Mario Husillos said in a statement.

Yarmolenko's arrival continues new manager Manuel Pellegrini's overhaul of the squad, with midfielder Jack Wilshere, goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski and defenders Issa Diop and Ryan Fredericks joining the club this summer.

"I think Manuel Pellegrini is the flawless coach for Andriy and his style of play".

West Ham do not appear to be finished there, though, with talks said to be ongoing with Felipe Anderson and Fabian Balbuena, while a £25m bid for Newcastle United skipper Jamaal Lascelles has been knocked back.

Yarmolenko, who has joined the Hammers from Borrusia Dortmund, is of the opinion that the Premier League is the best league in the world and it is the flawless place for him to test his abilities.


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

Those comments must make for an encouraging read for the supporters, who are seeing an exciting rebuild going on at their club after the toxicity of last season.

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

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

"It is hard to play in it, so it will be very interesting for me to see my abilities in England".
