Mexican forward Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez has been signed by La Liga side Sevilla on a three-year deal. Hernandez departed from English side West Ham United, to whom Sevilla paid an undisclosed fee.

Hernandez spent just over two seasons at the London club before relocating to Spain. He also featured in West Ham’s opening two league games, bagging a goal in the process.

Following his transfer, Hernandez made the following statement: “I want to thank West Ham for being open to negotiate and allow me to leave. It was not easy and it was completed late in the transfer window. I know Sevilla have put a lot of confidence in me. I’m going to give my all. I need to prove that on the pitch.

I hope that this new chapter in my career is better than my previous spell in La Liga. I feel well, I feel 100% and I’ve returned to my national team.

I want to show my best and I see myself scoring a lot of goals. This is a step forward in my career and it gives me a lot of enthusiasm. I feel I’m in the best form of my career and I just want to continue to grow as a player and as a human being.”
