The 25-year-old will officially become a West Ham player on July 1, when he will pen a five-year deal, and will become the Hammers’ second signing of the summer already, following the capture of Valencia striker Toni Martinez.

Nordtveit has previously had a brief spell in English football, after signing for Arsenal in 2007, but the former Haugesund player never made a first-team appearance for the Gunners and was sent out on loan to three different teams.

The Norway international, who has made 28 appearances for his country, is normally deployed as a defensive midfielder by Moenchengladbach but can also play at centre-back.
