West Ham has completed the signing of Swansea City forward Andre Ayew on a three-year deal for a club record fee of £20.5million.

The Ghana international moved to the Liberty Stadium on a free transfer ahead of the 2015-16 season and was a star for the Swansea side that finished 12th.

Ayew and left-back Arthur Masuaku arrived at the London Stadium on Monday, following Ashley Fletcher, Havard Nordveit, Gokhan Tore, Sofiane Feghouli and Arthur Masuaku in joining the Hammers during the close-season.

West Ham co-chairman David Gold initially announced the signing, before West Ham's official social media channels confirmed the move.

Swansea also acknowledged the departure of the forward, who will reunite with former Marseille team-mate Dimitri Payet in east London.
