West Ham have sealed the signing of Sebastian Haller from Eintracht Frankfurt in a club-record £45m deal.
Haller has cost West Ham a good chunk and has signed a five-year deal with the option of a further 12 months extension.
His arrival has seen the club break their transfer record a third time in a year after the signings of Issa Diop and Felipe Anderson.
Haller told West Ham’s official website: “I feel really great.
“I think it’s a really good opportunity for me to be here.
“It means a lot (to be the record signing). It proves that the club [has] really wanted me for a long time. I felt this desire to sign me and I’m really happy to sign, also. It is an ambitious club, a nice club, a nice city and nice fans too.
“For me, I can guarantee that I will give 100% for the club because the club has given me this confidence and I will try to give it back every day in every game.
“I will always give 100% and respect the club. I think this is a normal thing and that I can guarantee. I know it’s a big transfer and there is a lot of expectation around me, and I just want to make people proud of this transfer and I will give everything I have.”
Haller had a great campaign in the Bundesliga last season, contributing 15 goals and 9 assists for his former side.
West Ham director of football added: “He is at the perfect moment for us, like many of the players who have arrived at the club in the past 12 months – young, with his best years still ahead of him, yet with good experience and proven at the highest level.”
