West Ham United have completed the signing of Marko Arnautovic, the club have confirmed on their official website.

Marko Arnautovic joins West Ham after a club record transfer fee was agreed with Stoke City for his services.

Arnautovic was keen on making the move from Stoke to West Ham and had handed in a transfer request to push the deal through.

The versatile attacker, who can play on the wing or behind the striker, joins the likes of Manuel Lanzini and Michail Antonio in an exciting looking attacking midfield department.

The Austrian international had been at Stoke City for four years but was growing disillusioned with their lack of progression.

The Potters have been a mid-table team for a while now and have failed to launch a serious challenge for the European spots.

The 28-year-old has now decided to swap teams in the Premier League as he joins West Ham United.

Arnautovic is renowned for possessing maverick skill but he is also infamous for his fiery side.

Following the signings of Joe Hart and Pablo Zabaleta, Marko Arnautovic becomes the third player to finalise their transfer to West Ham.

Javier Hernandez is expected to follow early next week as the fourth signing of the summer after a fee was agreed with Bayer Leverkusen for his services.

Marko Arnautovic signs a five year deal with the Irons, keeping him at the London Stadium until the summer of 2022.
