Yarmolenko has signed a four-year contract with West Ham.

He follows Jack Wilshere, Ryan Fredericks, Lukasz Fabianski and club-record signing Issa Diop in joining the Hammers, who will be led by Manuel Pellegrini in 2018-2019.

West Ham remain in advanced talks with Lazio over the signing of midfielder Felipe Anderson and defender Fabian Balbuena from Corinthians.

The Hammers also recently had a £25m bid rejected from Newcastle for their captain Jamaal Lascelles.

Sullivan hopes to have further good news soon, telling the club's official website: "We are delighted to have secured two very exciting signings in the space of three days". However, I think Manuel Pellegrini is the flawless coach for Andriy and his style of play.

"I believe he is joining us in the flawless moment".

The Premier League is the best league in the world and I know that an interesting project is being built here at West Ham. "When we had the opportunity to sign him, we did not hesitate, because he really is the kind of player that we were looking for", said Husillos.

Sources have also confirmed that central defender Fabian Balbuena, now of Brazilian club Corinthians, is set to be unveiled imminently; West Ham have triggered the Paraguay international's release clause.

"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".
