West Ham have announced the signing of winger Michail Antonio from Championship outfit Nottingham Forest on a four-year contract.

Antonio becomes the Hammers' fourth deadline-day arrival following the signings of Alex Song, Victor Moses and Nikica Jelavic earlier on Tuesday, and joins for a reported fee of £7 million.

The 25-year-old Londoner emerged as one of the stars of the Championship last season and is eager to test himself in the top flight after returning to the capital.

"I'm buzzing and finally happy to be back in London at a massive club," Antonio told West Ham TV

"I've always been around London and I came to a couple of games here when I was younger, so I'm happy to be finally here and at a club I watched when I was younger.

"I've worked my way from non-league and finally got to the Premier League to show what I can do, and if the fans don't know me from the Championship, what I bring to the table is pace, power and goals, so hopefully I can do that this season."
