WHAT HAPPENED? GOAL is able to confirm that the Hammers have won the race for the 30-year-old frontman, with a new challenge about to be taken on in east London.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Everton had wanted to put a loan deal in place with Villa for the England international, who has won three caps for his country, but West Ham have agreed to a permanent transfer that will see them part with a big-money fee for a proven Premier League goalscorer.

AND WHAT'S MORE: Ings has previously spent time with Burnley, Liverpool and Southampton, and hit 14 goals for Villa through 52 appearances in all competitions.

WHAT NEXT? West Ham are set to play host to Everton on Saturday, with Ings in line to make his debut in that contest, with both sides desperate for points in a bid to pull away from relegation danger in the Premier League table.
