West Ham sign Ward-Prowse from Southampton


West Ham has secured the signing of English midfielder James Ward-Prowse from Southampton in a transfer deal reportedly worth £30 million ($38 million). 

The 28-year-old, who captained Southampton during their relegation from the Premier League last season, has inked a four-year contract with West Ham.

This move comes as Ward-Prowse makes a swift comeback to the Premier League after his former club's relegation. His arrival at West Ham aims to fill the void left by Declan Rice, another English midfielder, who moved to Arsenal for £105 million in July.

Ward-Prowse expressed his enthusiasm about joining West Ham, mentioning the club's upward trajectory and momentum. He highlighted his commitment to contributing to the team's success in the upcoming matches.

During his 20-year association with Southampton, Ward-Prowse earned 11 caps for the England national team and scored two goals. Notably, his prowess in scoring free-kicks is evident with 17 Premier League free-kick goals for Southampton, just one short of David Beckham's record.

His signing adds to West Ham's roster transformation, following their recent acquisition of Ajax midfielder Edson Alvarez. Ward-Prowse's hardworking ethos aligns with the club's values, and he looks forward to giving his all for West Ham.

The Hammers, who started their season with a 1-1 draw against Bournemouth, might witness Ward-Prowse's debut in the upcoming London derby against Chelsea.
