Mohammed Kudus leaves Ajax to join West Ham United

West Ham have completed the signing of Ghanaian and Ajax midfielder Mohammed Kudus in a deal worth at least £38m.

Ghanaian attacking midfielder, Mohammed Kudus has completed a move to premier league side West Ham, from Ajax for a reported $48 million (£38 million) deal worth.

The 23-year-old is set to sign a five-year contract joining former teammate and holding midfielder Edson Alvarez in heading to the London Stadium.

Speaking to the media on his move to England, the midfielder remarked,

“Since I was a young child, I’ve wanted to play in a league like this. I’ve been looking forward to this day and I’m overjoyed to be here. But I want to go further; it doesn’t end here.”

“I do my best to amuse the crowd because, in my opinion, that’s what football is all about. I’m only here to give the squad my all-out effort. I’m overjoyed to be here. I will  fight for the badge. I can’t wait to get started.”

Kudus has played for Ghana in 24 games while also part of the squad that played in the FIFA World Cup last year. He has scored seven goals since making his debut in 2019.

West Ham manager, David Moyes has described him as a “terrific young talent” who has already distinguished himself at the highest level for Ajax in the Champions League and made well over 150 professional matches at the age of 23.

He becomes the fourth major signing for the Hammers this summer following the arrival of fellow ex-Ajax midfielder Edson Alvarez in a deal thought to be worth about £35m, James Ward-Prowse from Southampton and defender Konstantinos Mavropanos from Stuttgart earlier this month.
