West Ham complete £10m transfer for Thilo Kehrer from PSG on four-year deal as defender becomes sixth summer signing | The Sun

WEST HAM have signed Thilo Kehrer from Paris Saint-Germain for £10million.

The German has penned a four-year contract with David Moyes' side.

Kehrer, 25, is West Ham's sixth summer signing and bolsters their defence after the departure of Issa Diop to Fulham last week.

The Hammers were especially eager to strengthen at the back after losing fellow new-boy Nayef Aguerd to a serious ankle injury last month.

Upon joining the East Londoners, Kehrer told their official website: "I’m very excited to sign for West Ham United.

"This is the best league in the world and I’m excited about coming to play in the Premier League.

Boss David Moyes added: "I am really pleased to welcome Thilo to West Ham United.

"He’s a talented player, who can play in a number of defensive positions, adding strength and depth to our current options."
