Michail Antonio will be a winger for West Ham, David Sullivan has confirmed, despite starting the season at right-back, reports Sky Sports.
Hammers' manager Slaven Bilic had been deploying Antonio at full-back in their opening Premier League fixtures, with the 26-year-old earning a debut call up to the England squad in Sam Allardyce's first England squad.
"Before the Deadline Day on Wednesday we had an unbalanced squad and we needed to change a few things around," Sullivan told the club's official website.
"The decision has now been made that Michail Antonio will play as a winger after originally starting the season as a right-back.
"We explored all avenues and managed to secure the signature of one of the more experienced full-backs in the world and one with Premier League experience."
