Slavia Prague defender Vladimir Coufal has signed for West Ham for £5m on a three-year contract having successfully completed his medical.
The right-back has won the Czech title twice with Slavia and has played eight times for the Czech Republic, including in their 2-1 win over England in European Championship Qualifying last October.
His deal at the London Stadium, where he will meet up with fellow Czech international and former Slavia team-mate Tomas Soucek, also has the option for a further two years.
Coufal will battle Ben Johnson and Ryan Fredericks – currently out with a hamstring injury – for the right-back berth at the London Stadium.
“I’m very happy I am part of the West Ham family,” said Coufal, who will wear the No 5 shirt. “I know about the interest West Ham had in me for a long time but now finally I am here and I am so happy.”
