West Ham co-owner David Sullivan has promised more signings for the club this summer.

West Ham United announced Andriy Yarmolenko as their fifth signing of the summer on Wednesday, and Manuel Pellegrini is really putting his own stamp on the squad.

The Ukrainian has joined on a four-year deal from Borussia Dortmund and joins Ryan Fredericks, Lukasz Fabianski, Issa Diop and Jack Wilshere at the London Stadium.

It is currently an exciting time for Hammers supporters, who finished the 2017/18 campaign feeling underwhelmed as they limped to a 13th-place finish in the Premier League under David Moyes.

The season had its low points - particularly when things got out of hand at home to Burnley, and supporters invaded the pitch and hounded David Sullivan and David Gold out of the stadium - but things appear much more harmonious now. That said, a ball has not yet been kicked.

But Sullivan and Gold are going the right way about trying to get the fans back onside with their spending, and the former has told the club's official website that he expects even more signings to be made.

Speaking about the club's latest acquisitions WIlshere and Yarmolenko, he said: "We also hope to have more exciting news regarding incomings in the near future as we aim to provide Manuel with the strongest squad possible."

These words are sure to carry more weight now.

If he was saying this after making one signing, fans would likely view it as a hollow statement. But the proof is there - West Ham mean business this summer, and are really trying to improve their squad for Pellegrini ahead of the 2018/19 season.

Sullivan and Gold have not always been popular figures with the way they have done things, but so far this summer they have definitely made steps to repair their relationship with the West Ham fans.

They will now just be hoping the new signings actually perform under the Chilean.
