The Mexico international will undertake the next challenge of his career in La Liga, two years after joining the Hammers from Bayer Leverkusen

Javier Hernandez has completed a permanent €8 million (£7m/$9m) switch to Sevilla from West Ham on Monday.

The Mexico striker has signed a three-year contract at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium, bringing to an end his two-and-a-half season stay in east London.

The 31-year-old netted his final goal for West Ham during a 1-1 draw away at Brighton on August 17, which also marked his last appearance for the club.

West Ham have released an official statement on their website, which reads: “West Ham United can confirm that striker Chicharito has joined Spanish Primera Division club Sevilla on a permanent basis for an undisclosed fee.

“The club would like to thank Chicharito for his contribution and wish him all the best in his future career.”

Hammers chairman David Gold also confirmed the news via his Twitter account, thanking Hernandez for his service before wishing him well in Spain.

He said: “Good morning. I can confirm that Javier Hernandez’s transfer to Spanish La Ligaclub Sevilla has been completed for an undisclosed fee. Good luck Javier”
