West Ham United are expected to announce the signing of Anderlecht centre back Cheikhou Kouyate.

The Daily Mail says Belgian sources are reporting West Ham have signed Kouyate on a four-year-deal after completing a medical.

Kouyate has spent his entire senior career in Belgium but now looks set to join Sam Allardyce's side for a fee of around £7million as they look to secure a top-six finish in line with co-owner David Gold's aspirations.

The Senegal international passed his medical and put pen to paper on a four-year deal on Tuesday to secure a dream move to the Premier League.
