Snodgrass Swaps Hull City For West Ham

share on:

West Ham have completed the acquisition of Robert Snodgrass from Hull City.

Snodgrass joined West Ham for a fee of £ 7 million, which could rise to £10 million with add-ons.

The Scot follows Jose Fonte in signing for West Ham, after completing his medical at the London Stadium.

“I’m delighted because this is a massive club with great tradition,” said Snodgrass. “This is the sort of club which speaks for itself, the fans who come here and support week-in week-out and moving to and selling out this new stadium is terrific and I want to be part of it.

“The owners and the manager are trying to build something here and I just can’t wait to get started. I feel this is a club with real ambition, with the new stadium, great players and a manager of his calibre at Premier League level.

“The lads will say we want to be up in the top half of last table and repeat last year, so it’s up to us. The club has had a few good weeks with results and if I can add to that, great. I’m just looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and getting started.”

Burnley and Middlesbrough have also been looking to sign the forward. With Burnley having a £10 million bid accepted also.

Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka suggested his team’s position in the Premier League could deter Hull from selling to a rival – with the two sides just four points apart.
