LONDON (AP):

West Ham has completed the signing of Colombia midfielder Carlos Sanchez from Fiorentina.

The 32-year-old Sanchez has committed to a two-year contract with the London club.

Sanchez is West Ham's ninth signing of the transfer window, with the club having invested heavily following the appointment of manager Manuel Pellegrini.

"It's an amazing opportunity and an amazing project the club are leading, being ambitious and keen to achieve good things," Sanchez said.

Sanchez, who spent two seasons in the Premier League with Aston Villa from 2014 to 2016, has made 88 appearances for Colombia.

West Ham have a tough opener to their league season at Liverpool on Sunday.
