West Ham United have completed the signing of Cruzeiro forward Wellington Paulista on a six-month loan deal.

The 29-year-old striker makes the move from South American with the option of a three-year permanent deal at the end of the season, joining Arsenal’s Marouane Chamakh as the second attacking reinforcement to arrive at Upton Park in the off-season.

“I am really happy to be here at West Ham,” Wellington told the West Ham website.

“Everyone has been very kind to me since I have been at the club this week. I think I can do my best here and I am coming to England to prove to everyone that I am one of the best strikers in Brazil and to get better and better.

“I am strong, I am a fighter and I can score with both feet. I run a lot on the pitch and I can play as either as first or second striker.”

Joint-chairman David Sullivan welcomed Wellington to Upton Park, and said he believes the Brazilian can prove to be an “excellent acquisition” for the club.

Sullivan said: “I’d like to welcome Wellington Paulista to east London and West Ham. He is another exciting player to add to our squad and although he may not be that well known on these shores, he comes with an excellent track record in Brazil.

“His arrival is similar to some of the other ‘wildcard’ players we have signed before like in Demba Ba and Ilan. They both made significant contributions and if he can match their efforts he will be an excellent acquisition for West Ham.”
