Downing leaves Liverpool for West Ham
London: West Ham United on Tuesday announced the signing of England international winger Stewart Downing from Premier League rivals Liverpool for an undisclosed fee.
Downing, 29, has signed a four-year contract with the east London club and follows striker Andy Carroll in moving from Liverpool to Upton Park.
"I`m very excited. It`s a great opportunity for me being here, it`s a great club and I`m really excited to get going," Downing told the club`s official website.
"I`m ready and I`m fit for the first game against Cardiff City (on Saturday). I`ve played a decent few games for Liverpool in pre-season, so there will be no problems on that front."
The left-footed wide player becomes West Ham manager Sam Allardyce`s fifth new signing of the close season, after Carroll, Romania captain Razvan Rat, Spanish goalkeeper Adrian and midfielder Danny Whitehead.
