Jack Wilshere signs for West Ham on three-year contract

GETTYWest Ham transfer news Jack Wilshere and Andriy Yarmolenko could both be coming

The Hammers announced the news on Monday afternoon, keeping the England worldwide in the Premier League (and in London) on a three-year deal.

Wilshere, who will wear number 19, linked up with his West Ham team-mates at a pre-season training camp in Switzerland on Tuesday, with Pellegrini praising the 26-year-old's desire to play for the club he supported as a boy.

"It feels good, it feels special", Wilshere told West Ham's official website.

West Ham's current transfer record is the £22m they paid Toulouse for Diop last month, although the £20m they paid Stoke for striker Marko Arnautovic last summer could rise to £25m with add-ons.

In a conversation with the West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini the midfielder now looks set to stay in England by signing a three-year contract worth £100,000 per week.

Manuel Pellegrini seems intent to bolster West Ham's attack this summer with Anderson looking set to follow Borussia Dortmund's Andriy Yarmolenko to the London Stadium, after the Hammers agreed a fee of £17.5m for the Ukraine worldwide earlier this week.

"It feels special. Many people know that I've had a special bond with this club growing up", he said.

"The fans, of course - everyone knows how big West Ham's fanbase is - and especially in this new stadium". The club did try and keep him, but Wilshere did not think he would get enough game time under new boss Unai Emery. On top of this, a picture of a young Wilshere wearing a Hammers shirt was leaked in 2013, which makes this move even more well-suited to the 26-year-old's career.

Signing the former Gunner, who has enjoyed loan spells at Bolton and Bournemouth, means acquiring a player laced with Premier League experience.
