West Ham have completed the signing of Borussia Dortmund winger Andriy Yarmolenko.

He said: "I am very happy to sign for West Ham United".

The 28-year-old also believes that the best opportunity for a player to showcase his talent is in the big matches and that is exactly why he came to the Premier League.

The Hammers have bolstered their squad with the additions of Andriy Yarmolenko, Jack Wilshere, Ryan Fredericks, Lukasz Fabianski and Issa Diop already this summer.

Goal understands West Ham have tabled a club-record £40 million (€45m/$52m) bid for the versatile attacking midfielder, and remain in talks with the Serie A club.

"I think Manuel Pellegrini is the flawless coach for Andriy and his style of play".

"As a board, we assured our supporters that we would be looking to bring in high-calibre players, and Jack [Wilshere] and Andriy [Yarmolenko] fit that bill perfectly".

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.

Yarmolenko told the club's official website: "The Premier League is, not even one of the best, but the best league in the world". They become our fourth and fifth new signings of an already busy summer, after the additions of Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop and Lukasz Fabianski.
