West Ham have signed French left-back Arthur Masuaku from Olympiakos on a four-year contract.

The former France Under-19 player, 22, began his career with Valenciennes before joining Olympiakos in 2014.

He won back to back domestic titles with the Greek side and played more than 100 senior games, including 12 in the Champions League.

West Ham targeted a left-back after Aaron Cresswell was ruled out for up to four months with a knee injury.

Masuaku, who will wear the number 26 shirt for the Hammers, made his international debut alongside Paul Pogba for the French Under-18 side in 2011.

During his time in Ligue 1 he played against West Ham's former Marseille forward Dimitri Payet.

"I was speaking with my agent about some opportunities, but when he told me about West Ham and also the coach, I didn't think twice," Masuaku told the West Ham website.
