West Ham have completed the signing of winger Stewart Downing from Premier League rivals Liverpool.

The 29-year-old has signed a four-year contract and reports suggest the Hammers have paid around 5million for the winger.

"I'm very excited. It's a great opportunity for me being here, it's a great club and I'm really excited to get going," Downing told the club's website.

"I'm ready and I'm fit for the first game against Cardiff City. I've played a decent few games for Liverpool in pre-season, so there will be no problems on that front.

"It's all happened quickly, but I'm really excited and hoping to play a part on Saturday."
