Sevilla sign former Man United, Real Madrid man Hernandez
Sevilla's busy transfer window has continued with the deadline-day signing of Javier Hernandez from West Ham on a three-year deal.
Javier Hernandez has left West Ham for Sevilla in a reported €7.7million (£7m) deal, becoming the Spanish club's 12th signing of the transfer window.
Mexico international Hernandez, 31, leaves London after two seasons and has signed a three-year contract in LaLiga.
The striker made the leap to Europe in 2010 when moving from Chivas to Manchester United, becoming a fan favourite during four years in their first-team squad, before going on loan to Real Madrid and then being sold to Bayer Leverkusen.
Hernandez's form in Germany brought about a return to England with West Ham and, although he has not always been their first-choice striker, he scored 16 goals from 31 Premier League starts.
He becomes Sevilla's 12th new arrival of the transfer window – which closes on Monday – and his signing is expected to lead to Munas Dabbur's exit, despite the Israel international only joining in July after the club acquired him from Salzburg in January.
