Andriy Yarmolenko: West Ham sign Ukraine international winger from Borussia Dortmund

West Ham United's new signing Andriy Yarmolenko has admitted that he made the move to the Premier League to get involved in big matches.

'West Ham is a big club with good fans and I am happy to come to play in the Premier League, ' Yarmolenko told the club website upon his arrival.

Dortmund also took to their social media outlets to confirm the deal, while wishing the player good luck for his future endeavors in the Premier League.

"Jack also knows the Premier League very well, and I know all our supporters will join me in welcoming them both to the London Stadium".

West Ham were hoping to sign Yaya Toure this summer and have held talks with the former Manchester City midfielder, according to the Sun.

The team wants to achieve high things and I am excited for this challenge. They become our fourth and fifth new signings of an already busy summer, after the additions of Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop and Lukasz Fabianski.

Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop, Lukasz Fabianksi and Jack Wilshere have already arrived at the London Stadium in recent weeks.

Dortmund snapped up Yarmolenko from Dynamo Kiev last August after Ousmane Dembele left for Barcelona.

West Ham do not appear to be finished there, though, with talks said to be ongoing with Felipe Anderson and Fabian Balbuena, while a £25m bid for Newcastle United skipper Jamaal Lascelles has been knocked back.

The Magpies have stood firm on their stance that the defender would not be sold, despite widespread interest.
