"If things go well and the new signings slot in and the players avoid injuries, then I believe West Ham should be finishing in the top half and challenging for the top eight." .

The 29-year-old's deal comes two days after West Ham's record signing of Austrian striker Marko Arnautovic from Stoke.

This summer however, it appears that the West Ham board have changed their transfer policy, focusing on short-term success instead of purchasing squad players for the future.

The striker is best known for his time at Manchester United where he was usually an impact substitute. As a remedy, former England and Arsenal physio Gary Lewin has being drafted in by the manager, who is hoping to see a drastic reduction in sidelined players next term.

"And hopefully we can get the three points to make a great start to the season". I'd settle to win a cup.

The striker will once again be the main man at West Ham.

But even though they have now reinforced every position on the field, they still fall short in some areas, particularly at the back - which was no more evident than last season where they regularly conceded heavily. "Nothing we signed in the last window came off", said Sullivan.

"We knew Dimitri was flawed, and that's why we got him for £10.5m", Sullivan told talkSPORT. He is tough, rugged and a true hard-worker off of the ball. "We wanted to keep one of them to have three 'keepers". He didn't want to have an unhappy camp.

Werder have recently released Claudio Pizarro, and West Ham's new signing was quizzed on the 38 year old, saying: "I would always give Pizarro a contract".

For Bayer Leverkusen, Hernandez scored 39 goals in just 76 games during his two years in Germany.

West Ham announced the signing of Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez on Monday evening. "For me, the (English) Premier League is the best league in the world and when the opportunity came, I was desperate to sign for this club", he said in a statement.
