The winger joins the club on a four-year
contract, with a two-year option, from
Nottingham Forest, joining the likes of Victor
Moses, Alex Song and Nikica Jelavic at Upton
West Ham have signed Nottingham Forest
winger Michail Antonio.

The 25-year-old becomes Slaven Bilic's 12th
summer signing and moves to Upton Park on a
four-year deal, with a further two-year option.
Antonio began his career at Tooting & Mitcham
United, but joined Forest last summer from
Sheffield Wednesday, having scored 15 goals
and provided 14 assists in all competitions in
2014-15, and he has expressed his desire to
prove his worth in the top-flight.

“I’m buzzing and finally happy to be back in
London at a massive club,” Antonio told West
Ham TV upon completing his move. “I’ve
always been around London and I came to a
couple of games here when I was younger, so
I’m happy to be finally here and at a club I
watched when I was younger.

“I’ve worked my way from non-league and
finally got to the Premier League to show what I
can do, and if the fans don’t know me from the
Championship, what I bring to the table is pace,
power and goals, so hopefully I can do that this

“I can’t wait for the challenge of playing in the
Premier League. It was one of the things
growing up, where I wanted to be, testing
myself against the best competition and, seeing
West Ham’s result of winning 3-0 at Anfield, it
shows I’m coming to a great team that’s
established in the Premier League. Hopefully I
can put my mark down here at the club.”
