Cheikhou Kouyate completes West Ham move

West Ham have completed the €9million signing of Anderlecht defender Cheikhou Kouyate.

According to De Standaard, the Senegal international has signed a four-year contract with the Hammers after successfully completing a medical yesterday.

The Hammers are reported to have paid circa €9million - approximately £7.2million - for the highly-rated 24-year-old, who has been on West Ham's radar for several weeks.

Anderlecht are set to replace Kouyate with Polish international Gregorz Krychowiak, who was also watched extensively by West Ham in recent months.

Although at the time of writing the signing is yet to be confirmed by West Ham United, Kouyate becomes the club's second new arrival of the summer following the capture of Argentinian forward Mauro Zarate last month.
