West Ham sign Nordtveit

West Ham have confirmed the signing of midfielder Havard Nordtveit from Bundesliga club Borussia Monchengladbach.

Nordtveit will join the Hammers on a free transfer on July 1, the Premier League club have announced.

The Norway international has signed a five-year contract with West Ham.

He told the club’s official Website: “It has always been a dream for me to play in the Premier League and now I have a big opportunity to do that for West Ham – I cannot wait to start!

“This team has something special, a spirit in the team that I can fit into. I will work hard and hopefully I can get some good moments at this Club.

“I’m a player who can play many roles on the pitch, but I’m from Norway so maybe a little bit more running, tackles and try to spread a few balls around me.

“I’m looking forward to showing what I can do, but hopefully I have something to help West Ham achieve even more.”
