Maiga completes move from Sochaux to West Ham

West Ham United have signed Modibo Maiga from French club Sochaux for £5million.

The 24-year old Malian striker has signed a four-year deal with the Hammers and is excited about continuing his career with the Premier League club.

"I am really happy and excited about joining West Ham United. I know West Ham are a big club in England and I'm really looking forward to representing them," he said.

"They have huge tradition and it is like joining part of a family and that is one of the main reasons I wanted to come here.

"I know some of the big names that have played for the club in the past and I am proud to be part of a new team back in the Premier League."

Maiga, who has previously played with Raja Casablanca and Le Mans, joins Mohamed Diame, George McCartney, Jussi Jaaskelainen and Stephen Henderson as new signings at Upton Park this summer.
