West Ham have completed the signing of defender Angelo Ogbonna from Juventus for an undisclosed fee.
The 27-year-old Italy international has penned a four-year deal with the Hammers and becomes their fourth signing of the summer.
Ogbonna made his name as a talented defender with Torino before joining their city rivals Juventus in 2013, winning two Serie A titles and the Coppa Italia during his time there.
West Ham announced the news on their Twitter account, writing: “BREAKING: The Hammers are delighted to confirm the transfer of Angelo Ogbonna from Juventus.”
Ogbonna, who has 10 Italy caps, was an unused substitute during Juventus’ Champions League final defeat to Barcelona in May, following Pedro Obiang, Darren Randolph and Dmitri Payet in moving to Upton Park this summer and is looking forward to working under new Hammers boss Slaven Bilic.
“I am delighted to have joined the club,” he told West Ham’s official website.
“I wanted to play in the Premier League and am happy to be in London. My heart told me that the right decision was to play for West Ham United.
“I cannot wait to start working under Mr Bilic and with my new team-mates. I feel ready for this new adventure.”
