The West Ham United fans who gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern are discussing news that the club have completed their first signing of the summer.
The Premier League side have confirmed they have reached an agreement to sign Havard Nordtveit from Borussia Moenchengladbach upon expiry of his contract on July 1st.
The 25-year-old has signed a five-year deal with the club and becomes the first addition of what is expected to be a busy summer for the club summer.
Speaking of his delight of reaching agreement with West Ham, Nordtveit said: “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.”
The West Ham fans in The Tavern are delighted with the signing of Nordveit and are happy to bring a player of his calibre to the club for next season.
Our landlord has to agree with the punters here in the Tavern, and thinks this could be an incredibly astute signing for Slaven Bilic and his men!
