Joint-Chairman David Sullivan has hailed the arrival of Jack Wilshere and Andriy Yarmolenko as West Ham United continue to build ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

Wilshere and Yarmolenko became the Club’s fourth and fifth signings of a productive summer as Manuel Pellegrini gets to work in shaping his squad for the new season.

Both this week’s additions possess considerable international experience – Wilshere has 34 England caps while Yarmolenko has represented Ukraine on 77 occasions – and Sullivan says the transfer business is not finished yet.

The Joint-Chairman said: “We are delighted to have secured two very exciting signings in the space of three days.

“As a Board, we assured our supporters that we would be looking to bring in high-calibre players, and Jack and Andriy fit that bill perfectly. 

“Both of them have played at the highest level and we look forward to seeing that quality on show on a regular basis in the Claret & Blue.

“Jack also knows the Premier League very well, and I know all our supporters will join me in welcoming them both to the London Stadium. They become our fourth and fifth new signings of an already busy summer, after the additions of Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop and Lukasz Fabianski.

“We also hope to have more exciting news regarding incomings in the near future as we aim to provide Manuel with the strongest squad possible.”
