What Edson Alvarez said about joining West Ham United

“I am very happy and very proud to be here. Being here in London and seeing London Stadium, it’s amazing. I can’t wait to play here in front of the West Ham fans,” said Alvarez.

“It’s a hugely sentimental moment for me in my career. To join a club like a West Ham is a dream for me and my family.

“The English Premier League is a special league, the best league in the world and I think my style will suit it. I now have a responsibility to West Ham and the West Ham family and I will give absolutely everything for the shirt.”

What David Moyes said about Alvarez joining West Ham United

Alvarez won two Eredivisie titles with Ajax – and the CONCACAF Gold Cup twice with Mexico.

He has joined West Ham United on a permanent contract until 2028.

“We’re really pleased to add Edson to our squad. The midfield area was one we were especially keen to strengthen this summer – and Edson will complement the other options we have in that department,” added West Ham United manager David Moyes.

“He’s an experienced international player, who has enjoyed great success for both club and country during his career to date.

“We’re excited about welcoming to West Ham and seeing him play his part in English and European competition for the club.”

West Ham United ended the 2022-23 English Premier League in 14th position – and have since lost midfielder Declan Rice to Arsenal.
