Alphonse Areola joins West Ham United on loan

The 28-year-old goalkeeper has signed a one-year loan deal with West Ham United. The France international (3 caps) has 3 years left on his contract with Paris Saint-Germain and this tie-up with the Hammers comes with an option to buy.

Alphonse came through the ranks at Paris Saint-Germain, winning three Ligue 1 titles (2013, 2018 and 2019), two Coupes de France (2017 & 2018), two Coupes de la Ligue (2017 & 2018) and three Trophées de Champions (2016, 2017 & 2019) playing 107 matches in all competitions.

The Paris-born shot-stopper was on loan to Fulham last season, making 37 appearances (10 clean sheets) and becoming the Cottagers’ player of the season.

Paris Saint-Germain wishes Alphonse all the best in the challenges that await him at West Ham.
