Goalkeeper Adrian has agreed to join the Hammers.
West Ham United have secured their second signing of the close season as Real Betis goalkeeper Adrian signs a three-year deal with the club.
The Hammers had been chasing the Betis shot-stopper after an impressive season in La Liga that saw the Spanish side finish seventh.
Adrian played 32 matches out of 38 in the top flight of Spain, even making a substitute’s appearance as an outfield player.
The 26-year-old will now act as Jussi Jaaskelainen’s understudy with the ‘keeper being 13 years the junior of the Finnish Premier League stalwart.
“I am extremely happy and ecstatic to have joined such a legendary and historical club in both London and in England,” Adrian told West Ham’s website.
“I am really looking forward to being able to kick-off my career in the best league in the world with West Ham.”
The ‘keeper’s performances last season helped Betis qualify for the Europa League, despite it only being their first season back in the top tier following three years in the Segunda division.
Adrian was second choice at the club where he came through as a youth player until a red card for No.1 ‘keeper Casto gave the stopper his break.
The Spaniard kept 11 clean-sheets in a great season for Betis, which included home victories over Real Madrid, Malaga and Valencia.
West Ham have now secured two new players before the start of the new season after signing Romania captain Razvan Rat on a free transfer.
Adrian will join up with his new teammates on July 1.
