West Ham welcomed new signing Jarrod Bowen with a video on Twitter following his Deadline Day arrival from Hull.

The 23-year-old has been one of the most prolific forwards in the Championship this season, scoring 16 goals in 29 appearances for Hull, taking his total for the club to 54.

West Ham manager David Moyes said: "We are delighted to welcome Jarrod to West Ham United. I think he could be a big success.

"He's probably what you'd call a wide forward these days, or perhaps an old-fashioned inside-right. He has played a couple of games as a second centre-forward or as a number 10.

West Ham manager David Moyes thinks Hull's Jarrod Bowen could be very successful in the Premier League.

"When you score goals like he does, and in the numbers he does, in the Championship, it will give you a great chance of scoring goals in the Premier League. We were attracted to the goals he has scored over the years; not just in one year, but over the last three years."

The undisclosed fee for Bowen is understood to be in the region of £22m, with the majority of the figure paid up front and the remainder made up of add-ons.
