Javier Hernandez could prove a vital asset to West Ham

England’s Joe Hart during training at St George’s Park

Hernandez, 29, scored 59 goals in 156 appearances for United after arriving at Old Trafford in 2010, before joining Leverkusen for £7.3m in August 2015.

But now it seems the Senegal worldwide is preparing to make his comeback to first-team action after recently returning to full training, and according to a source close to the club the 27-year-old is making excellent progress.

"I am happy that the deal is complete as it's a great signing for us", the manager told West Ham's official website. "West Ham and the national team are the only teams I care about this season".

Where will West Ham United finish at the end of this season?

Former United favourite Hernandez has just signed for West Ham for a very reasonable fee of £16 million, in the only deal this season that hasn't broken the world transfer record.

Chicharito is back in the Premier League now, having put pen to paper on a move to West Ham this week.

Darren Randolph made the switch from Premier League to Championship last week as he left West Ham for Middlesbrough.

"When he chose to go to Leverkusen, he told me "sorry" and now after two years, I found out he may leave I called him again". Current United Manager Jose Mourinho has previously claimed that he would never have sold the Mexican striker had he been in charge at that time.

A striker was always the top priority and many thought the £24million purchase of Marko Arnautovic from Stoke City would be the club's effort to fulfil that need. Hernandez, with a club average of a goal every 2.5 games, is the type of forward West Ham fans will love.

In attack, Hernandez and Arnautovic will join the likes of Andy Carroll and André Ayew to offer a diverse range of attacking options.

And that optimism is a far cry from this time last season, when most of their signings sank without trace.

West Ham are now on a pre-season tour of Germany where Hernandez is expected to join the rest of the squad this week.
