West Ham have signed Jack Wilshere on a free transfer, the club have confirmed.

Manuel Pellegrini is understood to have signed off on the move for the 26-year-old, who has signed a three-year deal at the club.

Goal understands that this move will not be the last of West Ham’s summer; the club have tabled a £40 million bid for Lazio’s Felipe Anderson, and are also in negotiations with Andriy Yarmolenko of Borussia Dortmund.
Wilshere, who has been capped 34 times by England and is a boyhood Hammers fan, said upon the completion of his move: “It feels good, it feels special.

“Many people know that I’ve had a special bond with this club growing up.

“People will have seen the picture of me in a West Ham shirt and I’ve got good memories of my childhood supporting West Ham, watching them at Upton Park.

“It feels good and of course my family and a few of my friends are West Ham fans so everyone’s buzzing.”

Wilshere’s stay at Arsenal came to an end this summer, with new Gunners manager Unai Emery now planning without the midfielder.
