Report: Yarmolenko completes medical

According to Ukrainian news outlet Zbirna, Andriy Yarmolenko has completed his medical ahead of his £17.6m transfer from Borussia Dortmund to West Ham.

Yesterday reports from Ukraine said he was already in London last night after given permission from his German club to speak to West Ham.  Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has told German newspaper Ruhr Nachrichten over the weekend that Yarmolenko could leave the club and that the BVB are in negotiations with another club widely reported to be West Ham.

The sporting director was asked the question after Yarmolenko was missing from pre-season training with Zorc confirming he has been “officially released for talks with another club”

The 28-year-old only joined Dortmund from Dynamo Kiev last August for £22m, but he has struggled to find his best form in Germany, netting just six goals in 26 appearances. The Ukraine international was a prolific scorer in Kiev, scoring 137 goals in 341 matches.

  1. I thought he was having the medical in Switzerland seeing as he is based in Germany after all would have made sense.

  2. 6 in 26 is not bad at all for a winger.( roughly 1 in 4 )
    Good thing is he can play RW or LW or as a striker, so covering Arnie too. If we get Anderson also then I would expect this one to be more of a striker.
    The new CB Malbueno looks a good replacement for Ginge. A real beast who would scare even the Spindly Killer fish.

    • Let’s not forget the left back issue hasn’t been addressed, and neither jas the defensive midfielder one.

      Laxalt from Uruguay caused me a very strong impression. Disciplined, sharp and good passer. Also, Dendoncker seems to be forgotten… I see him as a very nice addition. Maybe the director of football we have doesn’t.

  3. Looking at Wikipedia, his current team is listed as WHU, so this transfer has clearly gone through, Wikipedia would not get this wrong surely!!!

  4. I cant help but get existed here!
    I’m trying to be level head, as we have been let down so many times. But i’m finding it hard to wipe the smile of my face.

  5. perhaps a new song to unite old and new Hammers fans?
    “my name is Andriy Yarmolenko….”

  6. Where the hell is the money coming from? Did we have it all along? Have we borrowed it? I’m over the moon the board have listened and spent but if the Anderson deal goes through, that’s over £60 million spent. Who’s heading out the door?

    • We supposedly had £75m to spend this summer so the budget is still intact, but won’t take many more

    • If other clubs e.g. PSG can overspend with for the most part impunity we should do the same 😉
