ARNAUTOVIC COMPLETES £22M TRANSFER TO SHANGHAI SIPG FROM WEST HAM

Marko Arnautovic has completed a reported £22 million ($28m) move from West Ham to Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG.

Arnautovic handed in a transfer request at London Stadium in January, but agreed to stay at West Ham, signing a new five-year deal reportedly taking his wages to £100,000 a week after he was the subject of a £35m ($44m) bid from China, with Shanghai SIPG and Guangzhou Evergrande both interested.

However, renewed interest from China reportedly led to the 30-year-old former Stoke City forward asking to leave West Ham again in July.

West Ham have not disclosed the size of the transfer fee for the deal, which sees Arnautovic link up with Hulk and former Chelsea playmaker Oscar at SIPG.

A West Ham statement read: “West Ham United can confirm that Marko Arnautovic has joined Chinese Super League champions Shanghai SIPG for an undisclosed fee.”
