West Ham United have agreed a deal to bring Lukasz Fabianski from Swansea City for £7m. The Poland international who is currently in Russia playing the World Cup has agreed a move to the London club on a three year deal.

Following the end of Joe Hart’s loan deal from Manchester City, West Ham were looking for options to replace the England international for the upcoming season and now have agreed a deal for the Polish goal keeper.

Fabianski who was Swansea’s player of the season wanted a move elsewhere following the club’s relegation from the Premier League.

“I’m really happy to be joining at such an exciting time here,” he said.

“I will do my best on and off the pitch to help the team to achieve the best results possible and can’t wait to start this new chapter of my career.”

West Ham director of football Mario Husillos said that, “Lukasz is an experienced and established Premier League goalkeeper, with great quality that he has shown at both domestic and international level. He fits perfectly the mould of the modern goalkeeper, with excellent agility, presence and distribution, and will bring strong competition to the position.”

The signing comes just days after the club broke its transfer record for defender Issa Diop.

With Manuel Pellegrini taking over the manager’s job and with the arrival of new players West Ham will look to have a good season in the Premier League.
