West Ham have completed the capture of Pablo Fornals on a five-year contract.

The 24-year-old has made the switch from Villareal in a deal thought to have cost West Ham £24million (€27million) - a fee considerably lower than the player's £33million release clause.

"I’m very happy to be part of West Ham," said Fornals upon being unveilved as Manuel Pellegrini's latest capture. "I feel very good, very happy and very grateful for the opportunity that has been provided to me."

And Fornals revealed that he waslooking forward to renewing his working relationship with West Ham's Director of Football, Mario Husillos. "I have worked with Mario [Hussilos] before – I know him from when I was in Malaga," he said.

"With Manuel [Pellegrini], only when I saw him and admired him on TV. Of course, Manuel was a big influence because in the end he is one of the best coaches in the world and who doesn’t want to work with people like that?!"
