LONDON – West Ham completed their sixth summer signing on Thursday with a four-year deal for Switzerland striker Albian Ajeti from FC Basel.
The 22-year-old, whose deal includes an option to stay for two more years, signed for an undisclosed fee, though media reports put it at £8 million.
“Once I felt West Ham’s interest, I didn’t have to think twice about signing for such a big, traditional club in the Premier League,” Ajeti said.
“This is a big day for me and my family.”
West Ham’s director of football, Mario Husillos, told the club’s website that the young striker was the ideal addition to the squad.
