West Ham United continue to be very busy in the current transfer following the news that Lukasz Fabianski has joined the Premier League outfit to become their third summer signing after Ryan Fredericks and Issa Diop.
The Polish international goalkeeper seals a move to the Olympic Stadium from Welsh side Swansea City for a reported £7m after penning a three-year deal with the club.
His transfer was confirmed by the London club on Wednesday morning and he will replace England goalkeeper Joe Hart, who spent last season with the Hammers on loan from Premier League champions Manchester City.
Fabianski, who is presently with Poland at the ongoing FIFA World Cup, excelled at Swansea City during his four-year stay at the club.
He joined the Liberty Stadium club from Arsenal and more saves than any other Premier League goalkeeper in that four-year period.
He was named the Welsh side’s player of the season despite failing to prevent the team from suffering relegation but that didn’t stop him from leaving the club in the bid to retain his status as a Premier League player.
When asked about his move to London in his first Hammers interview, Fabianski said: “West Ham is a massive club so I’m really happy to be joining at such an exciting time here. I will do my best on and off the pitch to help the team to achieve the best results possible and can’t wait to start this new chapter of my career.”
West Ham United Director of Football Mario Husillos said: “Lukasz is an experienced and established Premier League goalkeeper, with great quality that he has shown at both domestic and international level.”
“He fits perfectly the mould of the modern goalkeeper, with excellent agility, presence and distribution, and will bring strong competition to the position.
“Of course, at this moment, Lukasz is fully focused on the World Cup finals with Poland. We wish him all the very best out in Russia and look forward to welcoming him upon his return to England later this summer.”
