West Ham have completed the transfer of Norwich City goalkeeper Robert Green.
Green has signed a four-year deal which could eventually be worth £2m for Norwich.
The move means he will be available to play in the Hammers' opening Premiership match of the season against Charlton on Saturday - but this is unlikely due him still recovering from the groin strain he suffered while playing in an England friendly before the World Cup. He is now back in training and will soon be able to challenge Roy Carroll and Jimmy Walker for the No 1 spot at Upton Park.
Norwich City chief executive Neil Doncaster told canaries.co.uk: "I would like to put on record the Club's sincere thanks to Robert for his massive contribution to Norwich City Football Club.
"I am sure that no one begrudges him his move back to the Premier League. He is a model professional, a credit to his profession and, frankly, a thoroughly likeable man. Robert, our very best wishes go with you for your England career and your time at West Ham."
Green is the seventh summer signing for West Ham manager Alan Pardew. In January Pardew bough Dean Ashton from Norwich for £7.25m.
