West Ham United have completed the signing of Chelsea centre-back Kurt Zouma on a four-year contract.
The Frenchman joined the Hammers for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around £25m.
“I’m very happy and very proud,” the 26-year-old told West Ham TV.
“My conversation with the manager went very fast. I just felt like he really wanted me to come and join the team, especially a good team that’s started the season very, very well.
“With the great season that West Ham had last year, that gave the team a lot of confidence to improve this year – and I want to help the team do that.”
Zouma won two Premier League titles, Champions League and a League Cup during his spell at Stamford Bridge.
