West Ham complete second summer signing as goalkeeper Wes Foderingham joins on a free transfer

West Ham United have completed their second signing in the ongoing Premier League transfer window as goalkeeper Wes Foderingham has joined them on a free transfer. 

The 33-year-old has penned a two-year contract that is set to keep him at the Hammers until 2026.  

Foderingham made 30 Premier League appearances last season for Sheffield United but couldn’t save his side from relegation to the Championship. 

His contract at Bramall Lane was set to expire at the end of this month but he has started a new phase in his career by joining the Irons. 

West Ham have already completed the signing of Luis Guilherme from Palmeiras in a deal worth around £25.5 million. 

They are also said to be in talks with Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Max Kilman but the Midlands side want an enormous transfer fee. 

The Hammers have already had two bids rejected but they are expected to return with a third bid also. 

New boss Julen Lopetegui is keen to bolster his ranks as he aims to make an impressive start in the 2024-25 season. 

Their performances were largely disappointing under former manager David Moyes as they finished ninth in the Premier League standings with 52 points. 

But the main reason they parted company with Moyes was the supporters’ dissatisfaction with his negative brand of football.
