Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder, Havard Nordtveit has been heavily linked with a move to West Ham, and his club have now confirmed he will be moving to England when his contract expires this summer.
The 25-year-old has made 31 appearances so far this season, and was also linked with a move back to his former club, Arsenal on a free transfer.
The club made the announcement on Twitter on Sunday:

The Daily Mail are reporting that the player has already agreed a deal with the Hammers.
The Norwegian international moved to Arsenal back in 2008 for a reported fee of £2.25 million but failed to make a single first team appearance before moving to Bor. M’gladbach on a free transfer in 2011.
Although his preferred position is in the centre of midfield, he has been used as a centre-back and right-back in the past.
He was included in the Bundesliga side on 179 occasions, scoring 12 and making 11 assists.
He’s also gone on to make 26 appearances for his country, and represented them eight times during the 2016 European Qualifiers.
Nordtveit has also been linked with high profile moves to Borussia Dortmund, Schalke, and Atletico Madrid but it’s believed he’d prefer a move to the Premier League.
