MADRID: Mexican striker Javier Hernandez has joined Sevilla from West Ham on a three-year deal, the Spanish club announced on Monday.
"Sevilla FC and West Ham United have reached an agreement for the transfer of Javier Hernandez, known as 'Chicharito'," Sevilla wrote in a statement.
"The striker has signed a three-year contract."
Hernandez's prospects of playing at West Ham had worsened after they bought Sebastien Haller from Eintracht Frankfurt in July.
The 31-year-old also had less than a year left on his contract.
"The club would like to thank Chicharito for his contribution and wish him all the best in his future career," a West Ham statement read.
Hernandez, who previously played for Manchester United and Leverkusen, is Mexico's all-time leading scorer with 51 goals in 108 appearances.
The 31-year-old returns to La Liga where he played for Real Madrid for a season in 2014-15.
He also reinforces Sevilla's attack after Wissam Ben Yedder was sold to Monaco and Pablo Sarabia to Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
Sevilla have made a good start to the season under new coach Julen Lopetegui, with two wins and a draw from their opening three games.
