West Ham have completed the signing of Andre Ayew from Swansea on a three-year contract for a club record fee of £20.5million.
After bids for Alexandre Lacazette, Michy Batshuayi and Carlos Bacca were rejected earlier this summer, Slaven Bilic decided to continue his pursuit for a striker slightly closer to home with Ayew.
The Ghana forward joined the Welsh side on a free transfer last season and made a considerable impact in the Premier League, scoring 12 goals in 34 appearances.
After signing, Ayew told West Ham's press
I am very proud and happy to be at this magnificent club.
I am happy to be playing for these fans and I hope to make the people very happy here.
The club have a lot of ambition and they also have a great manager.
They want to become a bigger club every year and with the new Stadium and a new training ground, you can feel they are moving onto another level and I want to be part of this project.
I want to train hard, do my job and show that I deserve to play for West Ham United.
I want to give back to the manager and the fans the confidence they are showing me.
