Wilshere signed for the Irons - the club he supported as a boy along with his father Andy - after his Gunners contract expired at the end of last month.

'It feels good, it feels special, ' said Wilshere.

"Many people know that I've had a special bond with this Club growing up".

"I've got good memories of my childhood supporting West Ham, watching them at Upton Park".

Wilshere said there were various factors that influenced him to join the club.

"First of all, I think we came to a very good place, a nice place where the players are comfortable and we have all the facilities to work hard".

The 26-year-old midfielder, who has won 34 caps for England, becomes Manuel Pellegrini's fourth summer signing following the arrivals of Issa Diop, Ryan Fredericks and Lukasz Fabianski.

Google Duplex Assistant could replace call centers, report says
In May, Google debuted Duplex , an artificially intelligent assistant that can make mundane phone calls on behalf of a human. Just last week, Google better detailed Duplex's disclosure mechanism and the calling experience that businesses will hear.

Jack is a West Ham boy which always helps so he'll know how to get the crowd going and they'll give him more time to settle in because of that.

In an interview, Wilshere claims his entire family were Hammers' fans and he had one specific player on the back of his shirt.

West Ham are reportedly set to complete a club record deal for Lazio winger Felipe Anderson.

After spending the 2016-17 campaign on loan at fellow Premier League side Bournemouth, he returned to the Gunners and made 38 appearances last season, but was not included in Gareth Southgate's England World Cup squad.

"On the biggest stage, he has shown that he has game-changing abilities, as well as having the creativity and intelligence to make a real difference to our squad".

Free agent Jack Wilshere ended his long stay at Arsenal by moving to London rival West Ham on Monday.
