Premier League club West Ham have signed Portugal star Joao Mario on loan from Inter Milan.
The London club announced Mario’s arrival on their official website on Friday.
“West Ham United are delighted to confirm the signing of Portugal international Joao Mario on loan until the end of the season,” West Ham stated.
“The 25-year-old attacking midfielder, who arrives in east London from Italian Serie A club Inter Milan, is a talented and skilful player capable of creating and scoring goals.
“Having received international clearance on Friday, he trained with his new teammates and has been named in David Moyes’ squad for Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup fourth-round tie at Wigan Athletic.
“Capped 31 times, Joao Mario appeared in all seven matches as Portugal won UEFA Euro 2016, and the Porto-born star cannot wait to show his worth in a Claret and Blue shirt.”
