DONE DEAL: Nikica Jelavic joins West Ham United

The striker returns to the Premier League

West Ham United have completed the signing of Nikica Jelavic from Hull City for £3 million.

The Croatia international returns to play Premier League football after suffering relegation to the Championship with the Tigers last campaign.

The ex-Everton and Rangers centre-forward becomes Slaven Bilic’s 12th signing since joining the club as manager this summer.

Jelavic also becomes the Hammers’ third signing of Deadline Day, following the captures of Victor Moses and Alex Song on season-long loans from Chelsea and Barcelona respectively.

Contract details

The 30-year old has signed a two-year contract at Upton Park.

Hull boss Steve Bruce is hoping Jelavic will be the last outgoing from the KC Stadium in this transfer window.
