OFFICIAL: West Ham Sign Felipe Anderson For Club-Record £40m (Photos)

West Ham have announced the signing of Midfielder Felipe Anderson from Lazio in a club-record deal.

Anderson has signed a four-year contract deal with the club until 2022.

The fee paid by West Ham is believed to be around £40m.

"I feel really happy and fulfilled to join West Ham United," Anderson told

"West Ham is a club with a lot of tradition, lots of great players have played here, like Bobby Moore, Carlos Tevez and Di Canio.

"They were great players and idols here, and I’m aiming big, who knows, maybe I could hit their heights and be a legend here too. I'm really happy to be here. It's a dream come true.

"I want to thank the owner, David Sullivan, because he made a big effort tobring me here. I know how difficult it was, so I have to thank him a lot, and I hope I can repay his faith in me on the pitch with goals and winning games."

Joint-Chairman David Sullivan said:

“Felipe was a main target of the manager so we are delighted we’ve been able to bring him to the Club.

“We’re very pleased with the business we’ve done so far and I hope the supporters are just as excited as we are about the squad we are building here at West Ham.

“The deal sees us significantly break our transfer record and we feel it’s a real statement of intent.”

Director of Football Mario Husillos said: 

“We are very happy and pleased to welcome Felipe to West Ham United.

“We believe that we have signed one of the most exciting talents in European football. Felipe has shown a fantastic level of performance at Lazio in recent seasons and we believe that he will now bring that quality to the Premier League. He is also a player very suited to the style of Manuel Pellegrini.

Felipe Anderson is West Ham's seventh signing this summer under manager Manuel Pellegrini.
