West Ham United sign Thilo Kehrer from PSG

Germany regular Thilo Kehrer has ended four years with Paris Saint-Germain after joining Premier League West Ham.

West Ham has signed Germany’s international defender Thilo Kehrer from Paris Saint-Germain in a reported £10.1million (€12m) deal.

Kehrer has signed a four-year deal with London Stadium, with a two-year extension option.

And he will become West Ham’s sixth signing of the window.

The 25-year-old has spent the past four seasons with PSG and played 128 times for the Ligue 1 side.

A tally bettered only by five others since the start of the 2018-19 season.

Meanwhile, he won seven trophies with the Parisians, including three Ligue 1 titles.

And he was part of the squad that reached the 2019-20 Champions League final.

At the international level, Kehrer has been capped 20 times by Germany.

With no player featuring more times since Flick took over as head coach in 2021.

However, Kehrer was in the final year of his PSG contract.

And reports were linking with a move to Sevilla.

He is now looking forward to beginning a new chapter in the English top flight.

Kehrer, who can play at left-back or centre-back, told his new club’s official website:

“I’m very excited to sign for West Ham.

“This is the best league in the world, and I’m excited about coming to play in the Premier League.

“I talked to the manager, and he told me about how he sees me fitting in at the club.

“My biggest goal now is to join the team, integrate myself within the group and enjoy playing for West Ham.”

Kehrer follows Nayef Aguerd, Alphonse Areola, Gianluca Scamacca, Maxwel Cornet and Flynn Downes in joining West Ham in this window.

David Moyes’ side has begun their Premier League campaign with back-to-back defeats without scoring and next face Viborg in a Europa Conference League qualifier on Thursday.
