Official: West Ham Confirm Lopez Signing

Managerless West Ham United have officially announced the signing of full-back Walter Lopez.

22-year-old left-back Lopez is a Uruguayan international and has joined the club on a one-year deal after negotiating a release from his contract at former club River Plate during the summer months.

The three-times capped player joins outside the transfer window due to his free agent status and was delighted to arrive at Upton Park despite the recent controversy surrounding former manger Alan Curbishley’s resignation this week.

Lopez could not hide his delight upon signing on at the club and revealed he is a massive Premier League fan.

"I am really happy to be here and I hope to have a good career,” he told the club’s official website.

“I watch the Premier League on TV all the time and it is the number one league in the world – the best – and I am delighted to be a part of it,” added Lopez.

"Upton Park is a beautiful stadium and it will be great to play for West Ham. I am looking forward to it.

"It is a great club and there are some great players at the club. I know about many of them like Lucas Neill and Craig Bellamy. Everyone here has made me feel very welcome. The fans are passionate and I hope to show them what I can do."

Caretaker boss Kevin Keen revealed his happiness at the addition, stating that he felt Lopez was a player capable of exciting the Hammers faithful.

"Walter is a very attacking full-back who can get forward," Keen said.

“He is a West Ham type player who will hopefully show everyone what he can do”.

Lopez has been allocated the number five shirt to wear this season and adds to the signings of Italian forward David Di Michele and Congolese full-back Herita Ilunga, who signed year-long loan deals on deadline day.
