West Ham have signed Marko Arnautovic for a club record fee that will net Premier League rivals Stoke up to £25million.

The 28-year-old Austria international has agreed a five-year deal with the Hammers, who will pay a guaranteed £20million with a further £5million payable on a conditional basis.

The forward, who joins Joe Hart and Pablo Zabaleta in signing for Slaven Bilic's side this summer, said: "It feels special to me to be a West Ham player. Everyone knows that West Ham is a big club, with big history and I'm happy to be a part of it now. I can't wait to get started.

"I can only say it is a massive club with a lot of fans. They are crazy for football and this is what I like. The club is still growing, getting better and better and that's why I'm here."
