West Ham United have confirmed the signing of New Zealand defender Winston Reid on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee.
Skysports.com revealed on Wednesday that the Premier League club had agreed a deal for the 22-year-old and the move has now been made official.
Reid arrives from Danish Superliga outfit FC Midtjylland having impressed at this summer's World Cup, where he scored a memorable late equaliser against Slovakia.
He told West Ham's official website: "I am looking forward to getting started. My dream has been to come and play in the Premier League and I am happy that I am a West Ham player.
"It has been a mad couple of weeks and the last couple of days have been pretty hectic, so I am just happy to be here now. I am pretty decent fitness-wise. I had a game last Sunday so I am in pretty good nick.
"The World Cup was a life-changing experience and something I will remember forever. I want to bring the positives from that here on the pitch at West Ham.
"This club has great history and the league is one of the best in the world. I am looking forward to the challenge ahead."
