West Ham on Saturday completed the signing of French defender Kurt Zouma from Premier League rivals Chelsea in a deal worth a reported 25 million pounds (29.1 million euros). The 26-year-old has agreed a four-year contract after leaving Stamford Bridge where he won two Premier League titles and a Champions League winners’ medal. “I’m very happy and very proud,” Zouma told West Ham TV. “My conversation with the manager went very fast. I just felt like he really wanted me to come and join the team, especially a good team that’s started the season very, very well.”

West Ham lead the Premier League table but have conceded five goals in their three matches so far after Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.

“I am delighted to welcome Kurt to West Ham United,” said West Ham boss David Moyes.
