West Ham have completed the signing of defender Alvaro Arbeloa on a one-year deal.

The full-back makes the move to the London Stadium having been released by Real Madrid at the end of the season.

Arbeloa, who won LaLiga and two UEFA Champions League crowns in his time in Madrid, previously had a spell in the Premier League with Liverpool.

The 33-year-old also enjoyed World Cup glory with Spain in 2010 and was part of the squads that emerged victorious at Euro 2008 and Euro 2012.

"I am really happy to be here in a great club in a great league," Arbeloa told West Ham TV.

"I'm really happy to be back in England and, for me, it's a great chance and I'm looking forward to playing with this side.

"The stadium is amazing. It's really nice and looks fantastic. Hopefully I'm going to see the stadium full with all our fans and I'm really happy to be here.

"For me, this is a great chance to be back in England and in the Premier League, which is a fantastic league and I want to put myself here again.

"This is a big club and a great club with fantastic players and a great coach.

"Slaven [Bilic] wants to see me training as soon as possible. I was talking with [Croatia internationals] Luka Modric and Matteo Kovacic and they told me good things about the coach, so I want to work with him and hopefully I can learn a lot of things."
