West Ham United’s newest signee Mohammed Kudus flew his mother and two brothers from Accra to East London to partake in his unveiling ceremony organised by the club on Sunday, August 27.
Kudus joined the Hammers on a five-year deal for a reported fee of £38 million plus add-ons.
He becomes David Moyes’ fourth signing of the summer transfer window as the Hammers boss looks to make up for the loss of Declan Rice to Arsenal.
The 23-year-old hit 18 goals last season and won two Eredivisie titles under Erik ten Hag during the Dutchman’s stewardship at the club.
In an interview, he told the club’s official website: “I’ve been dreaming to play in a league like this since I was a kid. I’ve been dreaming of this moment and I’m so happy to be here. But it doesn’t stop here, I want to keep going.”
“I try my best to entertain the fans as I think that’s what football is all about. I’m just here to do my best and help the team. I’m really happy to be here. I will fight for the badge. I can’t wait to get started,” he added.
He becomes the third Ghanaian international to play for the Hammers after John Paintsil and Andre Dede Ayew.
