Masuaku “honoured to be on board” at West Ham
West Ham United have signed French left-back Arthur Masuaku from Olympiacos on a four-year contract, the Premier League club announced on Monday.
West Ham United have signed French left-back Arthur Masuaku on a four-year contract from Olympiacos, the Londoners announced on Monday.
The 22-year-old, capped by France at Under-19 level, will help provide cover for Aaron Cresswell, who has been ruled out for up to four months with a knee injury.
West Ham did not disclose the transfer fee, but Jack Sullivan, son of co-chairman David Sullivan, said on Twitter that the club had paid six million pounds (7.1 million euros) to sign Masuaku.
“It's a big honour for me to be part of this club. I was speaking with my agent about some opportunities, but when he told me about West Ham and also the coach, I didn't think twice, so in my mind, it was West Ham. Now, to be able to play with players like Dimitri Payet, I was thinking on the way here, it's going to be crazy! I can't wait to play with him and also all the rest of the team” Masuaku said in a statement on West Ham's official website.
The full-back could make his debut in West Ham's Premier League opener at Chelsea next Monday. But the former Valenciennes player is cup-tied for their Europa League play-off tie with Romanian side Astra Giurgiu, having already played for Olympiacos in the Champions League qualifying rounds.
