West Ham United have completed the signing of Andriy Yarmolenko from Borussia Dortmund.
The 28-year-old only moved to the Bundesliga giants last summer having spent the last 11 years at Dinamo Kiev. However, he struggled to settle at the Westfalenstadion, scoring just three goals in 18 appearances for BVB, and has now completed a transfer to the Premier League for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around £17.5 million.
“The team wants to achieve high things and I am excited for this challenge,” said the Ukraine winger.
“The Premier League is the best in the world and I know an interesting project is being built at West Ham.”
Yarmolenko becomes Manuel Pellegrini’s fifth signing of the summer and follows the arrival on Monday of Jack Wilshere, who arrived at the London Stadium on a free transfer from Arsenal.
The Hammers have also signed defender Issa Diop for a club-record fee, as well as former Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski and defender Ryan Fredericks.
Lazio midfielder Felipe Anderson is also expected to arrive in the coming days for a club record fee of up to £40m.
