The 26-year-old - whose lack of form towards the end of the season with Arsenal led to his being omitted from the World Cup squad - signed a three year contract with the Hammers.

"I've got good memories of my childhood supporting West Ham, watching them at Upton Park".

"It feels good, it feels special", said Wilshere told the club's official website.

Wilshere has had injury problems in the past but was able to get plenty of game time for Arsenal last season.

Manuel Pellegrini has hailed new signing Jack Wilshere as a "great asset" for West Ham.
