West Ham have announced the signing of Spain international attacking midfielder Pablo Fornals from Villarreal.

West Ham are paying £24m (€27m) for the 23-year-old, making him the second-most expensive signing in the club’s history behind Felipe Anderson, who cost £42m when he joined from Lazio last summer.
Fornals, who has signed a five-year contract with an option of a further 12 months, will join up with Manuel Pellegrini’s squad after representing his country at this summer’s UEFA European U21 Championship finals.
“I’m very happy to be part of West Ham,” Fornals told the club’s official website. “I feel very good, very happy and very grateful for the opportunity that has been provided to me. I want the club to continue giving opportunities to young and ambitious people, people who want to do well for the long term.”
“I know about the loyal fans and the stadium, which is a beautiful stadium. The fans fill the stadium every weekend and that is something admirable, especially with the passion with which football is lived there. I think it is important to play with the support of your fans at home.”
Fornals, who was first targeted by Manuel Pellegrini in January, has been capped twice by Spain, and moved to Villarreal from Malaga in 2017.
