West Ham United have confirmed that they have completed the signing of Ipswich Town defender Aaron Cresswell.

The 24-year-old had spent three seasons at Portman Road and was voted into the PFA Championship Team of the Year for his exploits in the 2013-14 campaign.

Cresswell has penned a five-year deal with Sam Allardyce's side for a reported transfer fee of £4m, which could rise to £7m depending on appearances.

The signing is the Hammers' third of the summer, following the captures of Mauro Zarate and Cheikhou Kouyate.
