Silva, who was in the Under-20 Portugal side that made it to the quarter-final stage of the FIFA U20 World Cup last year, has vowed to give his new side "100% on the pitch", also claiming to be happy with his move.

“This is a very important moment for me," he remarked. "This is a new experience for me, out of Portugal. I am very happy to be here at West Ham.

“I am a technical player and I am very fast. I will give West Ham 100% on the pitch every time I play.

“It’s a big dream of mine to play here in England. This is a club with a big history, with very good fans and I’m very excited to be here.”
