West Ham were given Premier League approval to sign Blackburn’s Danish international defender Lars Jacobsen on a free transfer on Wednesday after making a late move for the Denmark international.
Hammers boss Avram Grant agreed the deal for Jacobsen late on Tuesday, but the move wasn’t ratified by the Premier League as checks were made to ensure the relevant paperwork was submitted before the transfer window closed at 1700GMT.
The transfer has now been rubber-stamped and former Everton right-back Jacobsen, 30, who has won 35 caps for Denmark and played in all three of their World Cup finals matches, is able to join up with Grant’s bottom of the table side, who have conceded nine goals in their first three league matches.
“West Ham United are pleased to confirm the signing of Denmark defender Lars Jacobsen,” a statement on the club’s website announced.
