West Ham signed Ukraine forward Andriy Yarmolenko on a four-year contract as coach Manuel Pellegrini overhauls his squad. 

The Borussia Dortmund striker joins midfielder Jack Wilshere, goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, defenders Issa Diop and Ryan Fredericks as new coach Pellegrini looks to improve upon a disappointing 13th-place finish last season.

West Ham director of football Mario Husillos says: “We are very happy to welcome Andriy.

“When we had the opportunity to sign him, we did not hesitate, because he really is the kind of player that we were looking for.”
