West Ham Finalized the Transfer of Former Arsenal Midfielder

Former Arsenal reserve team skipper Havard Nordtveit is set to sign for West Ham United when he contract expires on July 1st.

The 21-year-old is currently playing for Borussia Monchengladbach and has made 187 appearances in the Bundesliga.

His versatility will prove to be useful for the Hammers boss Slaven Bilic as he can play as a holding midfielder and as a centre-back.

“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,” a delighted Nordveit said.

“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.”

He left London six years ago and he also has 28 caps for his Norway netting two times.
