Faye joins West Ham

15th June 2011 - Chad Lazarus

West Ham United have completed the signing of Abdoulaye Faye from Stoke City.

The Senegalese defender can begin playing football games for the London club after his contract with Stoke expires on June 30th.

It is anticipated that Faye will be the first of a minimum of seven players that Sam Allardyce will bring into the club this summer, as the new football manager aims to take West Ham back into the Premier League.

Commenting on the move, Faye said: "I am very happy to be here at West Ham - this is a great club, a big club and I cannot wait to get started here.

"For me to come here was no problem, I had other clubs' offers, but I was happy to come here."

Faye has been a regular starter for the Senegal national team since his debut in January 2006, and helped his country to reach fourth spot at the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations.
