Darren Randolph has completed his return to West Ham - two years after being sold to Championship side Middlesbrough.

The 32-year-old - who is believed to have cost West Ham in the region of £4million - returns as back up to number one Lukasz Fabianski but could be set to go straight into David Moyes' first team against Evereton on Saturday with the Pole currently injured.

Back together again: Randolph is a Hammer once more

"I'm delighted to be back at West Ham United," Randolph told whufc.com. "I had two great years at the club previously and still have a lot of friends here, so I had no hesitation in coming back.

"It's a great challenge for me and I am really looking forward to working with the goalkeepers here and helping the team in any way I can.

"I'd like to thank everyone at Middlesbrough - the management, staff, players and fans - for their support. I had a great time there and wish them all the very best for the rest of the season.

"This opportunity was simply too good to turn down, though. It's a great feeling to be back in the Premier League with such a fantastic club, and I can't wait to get started."

The Irish international - David Moyes' first signing since also returning to the club - returns to Stratford having made 42 appearances during his first spell at West Ham, where he was back-up to Spanish goalkeeper Adrian, now at Liverpool.
