Julen Lopetegui has been named as the new head coach of West Ham.

The 57-year-old Spanish gaffer, who reached an agreement with the Hammers earlier this month, replaces David Moyes.

His contract is for two years, with an option for an additional year.

Following his departure from Wolves in August, Lopetegui has not held a managerial position.

“I feel very happy, first of all, to be able to be part of the future of this big club,” he said.
