Enner Valencia will complete his move to West Ham following a work permit hearing the club have officially announced.
The fee is believed to be around £12m with the Ecuadorian striker putting pen to paper on a 5 year contract.
West Ham fought off a number of top clubs across Europe (including AC Milan) to secure Valencia’s services, and the player is believed to be set to join up with the rest of the squad in New Zealand for a pre season tour once the work permit is granted.
A date for the work permit hearing has yet to be confirmed by the club, however this is being seen as merely a formality.
Valencia is the clubs fifth summer signing. COYI
