Official: Vaz Te Signs

West Ham United have officially completed the signing of Ricardo Vaz Te from Barsnley.

The former Portugal Under-21 international forward joins the Hammers on a two and a half year deal with an option for a third year for an undisclosed fee.

Speaking to

“I feel great. I’m very excited to work with Sam again and it’s great because I know a few players here,” he said. “I’m very thankful and excited and looking forward to it.

“I spoke to Sam on Tuesday and went to see him at his office. He told me what he’s looking for. I’m very excited and I think he’s very excited too. I’ve played with Kevin Nolan and Joey O’Brien before and I also know Neil McDonald and some of the backroom staff.

“I had a fantastic time at Barnsley. I’m very grateful for the opportunity they gave me and I hope the fans can understand why I left as West Ham is a great opportunity for me. I have a great respect and love for the Barnsley fans and I wish them the very best.”

Good news in my opinion as he definitely knows where the back of the net is, and having seen him play he looks like a tricky customer.
