West Ham have completed the signing of Juventus striker Simone Zaza on a season long loan.
The Hammers have paid a €5million fee to bring him to the London stadium, but the deal will be made permanent if the striker plays in what has been described as a ‘small number of games’ for the club.
Should that clause be triggered and West Ham do make the move a permanent one, they will have to pay Juventus a further €20million for the services of the Italian international.
Zaza made five goals in 19 appearances for the Serie A champions last season, whilst has made 14 appearances for his country.
The deal will be announced officially on the club’s website, but the deal has already been confirmed by club chairman David Sullivan and his son Jack, who posted this picture of Zaza and the chairman on this Twitter account:
