“It feels special to me to be a West Ham player,” Arnautovic, who has signed a five-year deal, told West Ham’s official website.

“Everyone knows that West Ham is a big club, with a big history and I’m happy to be a part of it now. I can’t wait to get started.

“I played against West Ham at the old stadium – I didn’t play last year at the new stadium because I was suspended – but I came to the game and I can only say it is a massive club with a lot of fans.

“They are crazy for football and this is what I like. The club is still growing, getting better and better and that’s why I’m here.”

Marko Arnautovic was a former Internazionale player joined Stoke from Werder Bremen in 2013 and scored 26 times across over 145 appearances for Mark Hughes.

Joe Hart and former Manchester City colleague are as of now in training with Slaven Bilic’s squad, while Javier Hernandez is expected to undergo a medical on Monday to complete a £13m move from Bayer Leverkusen.
