West Ham sign Javier Hernandez from Bayer Leverkusen

It's expected that the deal will be completed early next week after the 29-year-old takes a medical on Monday.

Javier Hernandez, affectionately known as Chicharito, left Old Trafford for Bayer Leverkusen in a £7.3 million transaction when Louis Van Gaal was Manchester United manager in 2015.

But now it seems the Senegal global is preparing to make his comeback to first-team action after recently returning to full training, and according to a source close to the club the 27-year-old is making excellent progress.

"I am very happy to join West Ham United", Hernandez told the club's website. "To start the season with my new team there is important and I will be happy to be there".

West Ham United have received a boost with injury-riddled Diafra Sakho returning to first-team training and "looking very strong", according to ClaretandHugh.

Moreover, he is now 29 and will come to the Premier League following a hard campaign with Leverkusen.

And, some West Ham fans posted amusing Tweets in the days leading up to Chicharito signing for West Ham.

Polish president sees flaws in contentious law on top court
In theory, Poland could be deprived of its vote in the EU's council of governments, but such a move would have to be unanimous. Lapinski said that Duda sees inconsistency between two articles regarding the appointment of the court's head.

The Mexican striker will offer some sought-after quality in the attack as well as bolster the numbers following the signing of Marko Arnautovic from Stoke City.

The goal has to be to get back into Europe and, though I feel Bilic could still use a couple more experienced faces before the transfer window shuts, their business so far means West Ham look ready to go back up a level next season.

In Hernandez, they have a true goal-getter, who given the opportunities could well prove to be highly prolific for the Hammers in the new campaign. Loan signings Gokhan Tore, Simone Zaza and Jonathan Calleri managed just one goal between them, while Andy Carroll found himself injured on three separate occasions, missing a significant chunk of the season.

"I spoke to him a couple of seasons ago when I joined West Ham, when he was at Manchester United and they wanted to sell him".
