West Ham United have confirmed the arrival of goalkeeper Alphonse Areola from Paris Saint-Germain on an initial season-long loan.

The 28-year-old returns to the English top flight after playing a starring role for Fulham last season, keeping nine clean sheets in 36 league games for the relegated Cottagers.

Areola would have been behind Gianluigi Donnarumma and Keylor Navas in the ranks at PSG this season, though, and West Ham have moved to sign the shot-stopper on loan with an option to buy in 2022.

Speaking to the official West Ham website, Areola said: “I’m happy. For me it was the best opportunity to sign for this Club, to sign for West Ham and to try my best to help the team.

“London is a great place to live and to work as well, and obviously the Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world so I really enjoyed it last season. It was tough for me and for the team, but I enjoyed playing in the Premier League. We were without the fans, but this year we will have the fans back so I can’t wait to see the atmosphere.

“West Ham did a big season last year. Obviously we have the Europa League and the Premier League and the two cups, so it will be a tough season and a long season but I think we’re going to enjoy it all together.

“We have really good squad. I watched games last season so I know the potential and the talent in this squad, so I can’t wait to start.”

Manager David Moyes added: “Alphonse is an experienced and talented goalkeeper who has played at the highest level and performed very well in the Premier League last season.
