Robert Snodgrass has joined West Ham United from Hull City for a fee of £10.2m.
The 29-year-old midfielder had been expected to leave the KCOM Stadium, with a number of clubs interested in his services. including Middlesbrough and Burnley.
However, the Hammers got their man on Friday, with the Scottish international signing a three-and-a-half year deal with the Londoners.
On moving to the London Stadium, Snodgrass said:
I’m delighted, this is a massive club with great tradition.
The owners and the manager are trying to build something here and I just can’t wait to get started.
I feel this is a club with real ambition, with the new stadium, great players and a manager of his calibre at Premier League level.
The club has had a few good weeks with results and if I can add to that, great. I’m just looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and getting started.
Snodgrass is West Ham’s second signing of the transfer window, after Jose Fonte joined from Southampton.
The Scottish schemer has been Hull’s standout player in the Premier League this season, netting seven goals. However, the Tigers will now be looking to new loan-signing Lazar Markovic to help fill the Snodgrass-shaped hole.
