Andriy Yarmolenko has all but confirmed he is about to become a Hammer today. The 28-year-old winger from Borussia Dortmund took to his own personal Twitter account to post some emojis of a plane, signing a piece of paper, crossed Hammers and sunglasses with the word “Rebus for the night” A Rebus puzzle are basically little pictures which cryptically represent a word, phrase, or saying.
We may have deciphered the Ukraine International’s clever little code. Jump on a plane to London, sign a contract with West Ham, get announced as a Hammer then relax in the UK heatwave to watch England beat Croatian to get to the World Cup final.
His agent told Sport.ua earlier today: “I’ve always said Yarmolenko was more suited to English football than German.
“I think everything will work out in England because besides being a good player, he’s also physically strong, and not afraid of contact, which is needed in the Premier League”.
Yarmolenko is expected to cost £17.5m although add-ons could take that price much higher.
