Zaza to West Ham a done deal, says chairman's son

Simone Zaza's move from Juventus to West Ham has been completed, according to the son of the Premier League side's co-owner.

The Hammers have been in pursuit of the Italy international for some time and have been looking to add a new striker to their ranks following the injury Andre Ayew picked up on his debut.

And the 25-year-old is set to join on an initial loan deal, with Jack Sullivan, son of David, revealing that it was a tough move to complete.

"ZAZA signed," he tweeted. "Full details on [West Ham] website tomorrow [Sunday]. One of the toughest deals ever to get across the line.

"[€]5m loan fee, if he plays a small number of games it becomes a permanent 5 year deal and we pay another 20m euro plus additional add ons."

He even posted a picture of the striker standing alongside the club's co-owner as proof of the completion.
