West Ham United Joint-Chairman David Sullivan is thrilled to have secured the Club record signing of Andre Ayew from Swansea and feels he will be a great addition to the squad.

Ayew completed his £20.5million move from Swansea City on Monday and cannot wait to play his first game at the new Stadium.

The Ghana international joined the Club on a three-year contract, with an additional two-year option, and can operate anywhere along the frontline.

Mr Sullivan believes his versatility will be crucial for Slaven Bilic as the team prepare for a number of games in both domestic and European competition.

Mr Sullivan said: “Andre is a great player. He was Swansea's leading goalscorer last season.

“He can play all four positions across the frontline and last season when he played as a striker he scored six goals in eight games.

“We have been negotiating with Swansea for over three weeks and are delighted to have secured his signature.”

On a busy day of transfer activity for the Hammers, Mr Sullivan was also pleased to see the arrival of talented full-back Arthur Masuaku from Olympiacos for £6.2million.

Mr Sullivan added: “We are delighted to announce the signing of Masuaku and our scouts say he's a top player with Champions League experience.”
