Wes Foderingham has spoken of his delight in making the move to east London this summer.

The goalkeeper joins the club on a free transfer having recently been with Championship side Sheffield United, and he now is set to be the clubs new 3rd choice keeper under the new Julen Lopetegui regime.

Speaking to the club’s Official Website following confirmation of his arrival, Foderingham spoke of his pride in joining a club with such a passionate fanbase.

“As soon as I heard of the interest, it was something that I was keen to get sorted and get done and I’m just delighted to be here,” said Foderingham.

“I’ve been fortunate to play for teams with a real strong fanbase, a fanbase that’s passionate about their club, and West Ham are no different. They’re a fanbase that care deeply about their football club, it’s a family club as well, and I find it’s always better to play for a team where you have those supporters cheering you on week in, week out.

“Especially in the last few years, the Club has had some really good success in Europe and in the Premier League as well. I think the Club has gone from strength to strength and I think I’m joining at a very, very good time as it’s a positive time for the Club.”

The club are expected to continue the rebuild of the squad, with our club insider ExWHUEmployee providing updates on The West Ham Way Patreon.
