Amalfitano told WHUFC.com ‘It’s very good news and I’m very happy to come to this big club.
‘I’ve waited a long time, but I am very happy to have signed here. The Club wanted me a lot and for that I waited for West Ham and now I’m here.The manager explained to me how the team plays and how he needs me. I explained to him where I prefer as my position in his team. This is a new team with very good players with great experience of this league. I think everything can go well and I hope we have a good season. I prefer to play behind the striker, but last year with West Brom I played on the right. I like to cross the ball too, but I can also give through passes from behind the striker. The coach will see what happens in every game and if he finds another position for me in the team, there is no problem for me.
He has one international cap for France, was on loan in with West Brom last season.
During his time at The Hawthorns, Amalfitano scored four goals in 28 appearances for Albion.
Amalfitano started his career in France with Sedan and spent three years at Lorient before moving to Marseille in 2011.
