Centre-back Kurt Zouma has completed his move to West Ham from Chelsea on a contract until the summer of 2025.
Sky Sports News previously reported that West Ham were keen to add defensive reinforcements and had targeted Zouma, who had fallen out of favour at Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel.
The 26-year-old France international underwent his medical on Thursday ahead of completing his move across the capital to the London Stadium.
“I’m very happy and very proud,” Zouma said.
“My conversation with the manager went very fast. I just felt like he really wanted me to come and join the team, especially a good team that’s started the season very, very well.
“With the great season that West Ham had last year, that gave the team a lot of confidence to improve this year – and I want to help the team do that.”
