West Ham United confirmed earlier this week that they have completed the signing of Juventus defender Angelo Ogbonna on a four-year deal.

News of the move first came about on Thursday evening when talksport reported that the East London club were interested and the deal was finalised on Friday.

The 27-year-old Italian international is the club's second acquisition from Serie A this summer following the arrival of Pedro Obiang and although the defender is the fifth signing to come through the door at Upton Park, he is only the second since manager Slaven Bilic arrived on 9 June.

Ogbonna already has European experience and was in the squad for Juventus as they were defeated by Barcelona in last season's Champions League final. 

He could make his West Ham debut as the Hammers prepare to face Maltese side Birkirkara in the first-leg of their Europa League second qualifying round tie after making it through to that stage, thanks to a 4-0 aggregate win over FC Lusitans of Andorra on Thursday night.
