West Ham United are set to confirm the signing of goalkeeper Alphonse Areola from Paris St-Germain.

Terms have been agreed with the French Ligue 1 champions for Areola, who spent last season on loan with the Hammers and will cost around £10.5m.

Areola impressed last term when he was in goal throughout West Ham's run to the Europa League semi-final, where they were beaten by Eintracht Frankfurt.

It is anticipated the 29-year-old will battle for the number one slot with established first-choice Lucasz Fabianski, who signed a one-year contract extension in May.

Areola is expected to eventually succeed the veteran Pole.
