Hammers sign Nordtveit


West Ham are to sign Havard Nordtveit from Borussia Moenchengladbach on a free transfer.

Nordtveit had attracted interest from a number of European clubs but the 25-year-old has agreed a five-year deal to join the Hammers and will complete his move on July 1.

"It has always been a dream for me to play in the Premier League and now I have a big opportunity to do that for West Ham – I cannot wait to start!" Nordtveit told the club's official website.

"This team has something special, a spirit in the team that I can fit into. I will work hard and hopefully I can get some good moments at this Club.

"I’m a player who can play many roles on the pitch, but I’m from Norway so maybe a little bit more running, tackles and try to spread a few balls around me.

"I’m looking forward to showing what I can do, but hopefully I have something to help West Ham achieve even more."

Nordtveit joined Arsenal in 2007 but left in 2010 without making a first-team appearance. Having joined Moenchengladbach in December 2010, the midfielder played 187 games for the German side, scoring 12 goals.

At international level, Nordtveit has represented Norway on 28 occasions.
