West Ham have completed the signing of Alphonse Areola from PSG.
The 28-year old goalkeeper was pushed further down the pecking order at PSG following the arrival of Gianluigi Donnarumma from AC Milan.
Areola will now join the Hammers on a season-long loan and have the option to make the move permanent next summer.

Areola said: ‘For me it was the best opportunity to sign for this Club, to sign for West Ham and to try my best to help the team.
‘London is a great place to live and to work as well, and obviously the Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world so I really enjoyed it last season. It was tough for me and for the team, but I enjoyed playing in the Premier League. We were without the fans, but this year we will have the fans back so I can’t wait to see the atmosphere.
‘West Ham did a big season last year. Obviously we have the Europa League and the Premier League and the two cups, so it will be a tough season and a long season but I think we’re going to enjoy it all together.
‘We have really good squad. I watched games last season so I know the potential and the talent in this squad, so I can’t wait to start.’
