ICYMI: Kurt Zouma joins West Ham from Chelsea

Last night, West Ham completed the signing of defender Kurt Zouma from Chelsea in a deal believed to be worth £25million.

The France international spoke after the transfer saying:

I'm very happy and very proud.

My conversation with the manager went very fast. I just felt like he really wanted me to come and join the team, especially a good team that's started the season very, very well.

With the great season that West Ham had last year, that gave the team a lot of confidence to improve this year – and I want to help the team do that.

Hammers' boss David Moyes also commented on the deal:

I am delighted to welcome Kurt to West Ham United. He is a player we have tracked for some time, and we have taken great care and diligence to make the transfer happen. He was always our first choice and I am very happy that he is now our player.

Kurt will join a squad full of players who are hungry and ambitious. He will provide competition to our squad. He is a strong, powerful player with great experience in the Premier League while he is also at a good age for a center-back.

Kurt has enjoyed great success at Chelsea and I can see that he is determined to continue being successful here at the London Stadium.

With the Blues, Zouma won two Premier League crowns and a Champions League winner's medal, and he provides the experience that Hammers manager David Moyes was looking for to bolster his defense.
