West Ham striker Arnautovic passes Shanghai SIPG medical

West Ham striker Marko Arnautovic has passed a medical with Shanghai SIPG.

Sky Sports says Arnautovic has passed a medical ahead of a proposed move to Shanghai SIPG from West Ham after a 25 million euro (£22.4m) deal was agreed.

The 30-year-old registered 21 goals in 59 Premier League matches for the Hammers in his two seasons at the club and established himself as a fans favourite before asking to leave for the Chinese Super League in January.

After pushing for a move away, Arnautovic signed a contract extension which saw his wages rise by 20 per cent to £120,000 a week, including a £40m release clause, which expired on June 14.

Arnautovic will become the third forward to leave West Ham this window after Andy Carroll's contract expired and Lucas Perez was sold to Alaves, with Javier Hernandez also admitting he will be allowed to leave this summer.
