West Ham have completed the signing of Sam Baldock on a four-year contract from MK Dons.
The Hammers have paid an undisclosed fee for the highly-rated striker, with the deal including the option for a fifth year together should both sides wish to prolong their association.
Baldock had been interesting a number of clubs this summer, but it is Sam Allardyce that has been able to secure his signature.
He passed a medical at Upton Park on Friday before putting pen to paper.
Baldock told the club's official website: "I am pleased to be here. I am just excited to be coming to such a great club, caked in so much history. I just want to hit the ground running.
"It is a massive club, isn't it? You just have to turn up at the stadium and your head is looking up straight away.
"The area, the fans are so passionate. I want to show what I can do for them and hopefully everyone will be proud of me."
Baldock becomes Allardyce's seventh signing of the summer, as he continues his squad overhaul.
He is expected to make his West Ham debut in Saturday's Championship clash with Portsmouth.
Sam Allardyce is delighted to have got his man and is expecting big things from Baldock this season.
"We are very excited and very pleased to acquire such a young, talented goal-scorer," he said.
"I am sure he will go a long way and hopefully it will be an exciting time to help get West Ham where we want them to go."
