Luis Guilherme to West Ham is a done deal, with the player expected to fly to England tomorrow.

Claret & Hugh has confirmed through a top source at the club that the Brazilian is 100% a Tim Steidten pick, and the Hammers’ director of football has the full backing of the club.

Earlier this evening, Fabrizio Romano tweeted the schedule for the next few days, which will see the player fly to the UK, with his medical booked for early next week.

The Italian journalist and transfer expert tweeted: “Luis Guilherme will become a new West Ham player next week, exclusive story confirmed. Luis will fly to England on Sunday, arriving in London with his camp on Monday. Medical between Tuesday and Wednesday, then time to sign until June 2029.”

It is being widely reported that the transfer is an initial fee of £19.5m plus £6m in potential add-ons with a 20% sell on clause based only on profit.

The news is a massive boost to everyone at the club, particularly Steidten, who has spent the last three months making several trips to Brazil. The Hammers’ director of football travelled to South America twice between the Europa League double-header against Bayer Leverkusen.

As reported earlier, the club is still in the market for up to six more players, including two central defenders and a striker.

    Savio II ?

    Let’s hope not but it seems very risky.

  • Paul says:

    This is what Štieden is all about could bé a very savy transfer.

  • Eddy Trivett says:

    Risky, not as risky as Moyes transfers – Ings, Phillips etc. Plus Moyes waited so long to try to get Lingard (which I’m glad he didn’t) that he missed out on other much better players while dithering.

  • Hammerpete6 says:

    Well done Tim, looking forward to it, we’ve already got a couple of our home grown youngsters ready to step up, so the reshape begins. I prefer to be glass half full about this change of emphasis, which many of us called for. Clear out time.

  • David says:

    Risky? there are risks in all transfers so lets give the player and the club a bit of breathing space or would people like us to sign Martial instead!

  • David Pope says:

    Excellent news that we’ve finally signed him.
    His potential is massive…hope he fulfils it.
    Nice one Tim.

    I hope someone’s checked how many yellow cards he gets? There isn’t some obscure island called Guillaume is there?
