West Ham snapped up Real Betis Adrian on a free transfer

West Ham snapped up Real Betis Adrian on a free transfer

West Ham United confirmed the signing of Real Betis goalkeeper Adrian on a free transfer.

The 26-year-old Spaniard’s contract with Real Betis is due to expire on the 1st July. He refused to extend his deal with the Spanish side, preferring to make a move to Premier League.

Adrian put pen to paper on a three-year deal that has an option of extending the contract for further two years.

The Spaniard, who has spent all his career at Real Betis, revealed he relishes a chance of new beginning at Boleyn Ground. He said: “I am extremely happy and ecstatic to have joined such a legendary and historical club in both London and in England. I am really looking forward to being able to kick-off my career in the best league in the world with West Ham.

“I started off my career as a ten-year-old and have been there all of my life. I came through the ranks and I made my first-team debut in the sixth league game of last season against Malaga and was an ever-present since. For me, the icing on the cake was helping the team to qualify for the Europa League in, like West Ham, our first season back in the top flight after we had spent three years in the Second Division. Achieving this qualification was a massive farewell gift for the Betis fans,” he added.
