West Ham close on Jack Wilshere & Andriy Yarmolenko signings

Jack Wilshere, who has been capped 34 times by England, made his Arsenal debut 10 years ago

West Ham are close to completing the double signing of former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere and Ukraine forward Andriy Yarmolenko.

England international Wilshere, 26, has been looking for a new club since his Gunners contract expired at the end of June.

A fee of about 20m euros (£17.66m) is understood to have been agreed with Borussia Dortmund for Yarmolenko.

The 28-year-old has scored 35 times in 77 appearances for his country.

Wilshere’s career has been badly affected by injuries but the Hammers are confident he can make a meaningful contribution to a squad being overhauled by new manager Manuel Pellegrini.
