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

Jack Wilshere has spoken of his delight after leaving Arsenal to sign for West Ham United this summer.

The 26-year-old England midfielder signed a three-year contract with West Ham, the club said. "It feels good and of course my family and a few of my friends are West Ham fans so everyone's buzzing".

Hampered by injuries in the past, the England worldwide made 20 league appearances in the 2017-18 season but now starts a fresh chapter of his career.

Wilshere - scorer of 14 goals in his 197 appearances for the Gunners and who won two FA Cup winners medals in 2014 and 2015 - said it was well known the strong emotional ties he had with West Ham.

"I had all the shirts, my brother did, I think I had John Moncur on the back of that, you know".

Del Potro too noted the change in conditions but appeared to relish the chance to slide around a bit more on the grass. Nadal broke for 3-2 but had to save break points in the sixth and eighth games before securing a memorable victory.

He returned to make 38 appearances for the Gunners last season but made a decision to leave in search of first-team football after meeting with new Arsenal manager Unai Emery.

He joins the Hammers for their first season under new boss Manuel Pellegrini.

Anderson will join new signing Andriy Yarmolenko at West Ham this summer as the club make a concerted effort to take the club forward after a tough spell. "Jack is a player with vast experience and quality at the highest level, having played all of his career in the Premier League".

He impressed on his return to Arsenal last season but the 34-cap England worldwide was unable to force his way into the squad for the World Cup.

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 global earlier this week.
