The 26-year-old midfielder arrived the London club after he chose to leave Arsenal after 17 years when his contract expired last month.

"It feels good, it feels special", he told the club's official website.

Speaking after signing for West Ham, the 26-year-old said he feels good joining his childhood club. He's got to be ready for the challenge because the West Ham fans, if things aren't going well they can be pretty ferocious as we've seen this year.

The same report says that West Ham United are also keen on a deal to land the Brazilian attacker this summer as the Hammers look to strengthen their own squad.

Wilshere said there were various factors that influenced him to join the club.

"I want to be playing here in front of the Hammers, and my bond I've had with the Club over my childhood will make it even more special".

Wilshere said he did not have to think twice when he learned of Pellegrini's interest which made him join the east Londoners.

Not many current West Ham players have the CV that Wilshere possesses and this experience could prove to be invaluable as the Hammers aim to break into the Premier League's top half next season.

'The West Ham fans are some of the very best and I am looking forward to giving everything I have to helping the team to bring success to you all.

Wilshere has had injury problems in the past but was able to get plenty of game time for Arsenal last season.

Wilshere's stay at Arsenal came to an end this summer, with new Gunners manager Unai Emery now planning without the midfielder.
