The 25-year-old has put pen to paper on a four-year deal at West Ham and hands manager David Moyes a much-needed extra option amid his mounting defensive injury concerns.

Head of recruitment Rob Newman allegedly beat La Liga giants Sevilla to Kehrer’s signature, but he wanted to a move to West Ham and the Premier League instead – according to Sky Sports.

The Latest: Bailey thrilled…

After this development, 90min reporter Bailey has been left thrilled by West Ham’s astute transfer business – calling it a ‘huge’ move by Moyes and the club.

He stated (via Twitter):

“Huge signing for West Ham as Thilo Kehrer arrives from PSG – their defensive situation was getting to beyond crisis levels.”

The Verdict: Excellent addition…

Kehrer’s versatility is a huge bonus of his arrival.

The German can operate as a full-back, wing-back and holding midfielder alongside his natural duties at centre-half, so just over £10 million plus add-ons really is a brilliant price (Sky Sports).

Kehrer’s experience at the top level will also be invaluable, having clinched six major domestic honours with PSG and featuring often for Germany’s national team squad.

Indeed, this could end up being one of West Ham’s signings of the summer.
