Friends, the life of the footballer threw me another challenge, which I decided to accept. I was very pleased to play for Borussia Dortmund. I express my gratitude to the club, the team, the fantastic fans. Thank you, Dortmund! I will never forget the time spent here! pic.twitter.com/E8HGVipVsW— Andriy Yarmolenko (@Yarmolenko_9) July 11, 2018
The Ukrainian signed a four-year contract. According to unofficial information, the “hammers” the transfer cost around $29 million. Yarmolenko’s transfer to Borussia Dortmund last year cost the same amount of money.
“Of course, I am very happy to sign for West Ham United. West Ham is a big club with good fans and I am happy to come to play in the Premier League. The Premier League is the best league in the world and I know that an interesting project is being built here at West Ham. The team wants to achieve high things and I am excited for this challenge," Yarmolenko said, as West Ham United reports.
It should be noted that West Ham took the 13th place in the Premier League last season.
The club invited Manuel Pellegrini, former manager of Manchester City, to lead West Ham this season. Pellegrini has already brought Jack Wilshere and Felipe Anderson to the club.
