West Ham sign Andriy Yarmolenko from Borussia Dortmund on four-year deal

Borussia Dortmund signed Yarmolenko for roughly the same fee less than an year ago, so to break even despite his disappointing season is a good deal for the club.

West Ham have signed Ukraine winger Andriy Yarmolenko from Borussia Dortmund on a four-year deal.

"The Premier League is the best league in the world and I know that an interesting project is being built here at West Ham", said Yarmolenko.

If Anderson is signed, he would become West Ham's sixth signing of the summer following the additions of Andriy Yarmolenko (£17.5m, Borussia Dortmund), Jack Wilshere (free), Ryan Fredericks (free), Lukasz Fabianski (£7m, Swansea) and Issa Diop (£22m rising to £25m, Toulouse).

But before they were found, the group had to survive for nine days in the darkness unaware of the desperate search efforts. They were taken by helicopter to a hospital about 70 kilometers (45 miles) away to join their teammates in quarantine.

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

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 ideal place for him to test his abilities. Of course, he has coached some great clubs across Europe as well, so I am very interested to begin working with him.

"I will be trying to make our supporters as happy as possible".

Yarmolenko and Anderson will certainly add an excitement angle to the Hammers this season but Pellegrini will now need to get the best out of two extremely talented players if he is to turn the club into a top half team next season. The Daily Mail report that the Hammers are closing in on another transfer target, Lazio star Felipe Anderson for £40 million.
