Luis Boa Morte has confirmed he has agreed to move to West Ham.
The Portuguese international is set to tie up the move to Upton Park on Friday after Fulham accepted a £5million offer for the winger.
The former Arsenal man believes the time is right to seek a new challenge after six years at Craven Cottage.
"It was just the moment for a change to another big club and continue my story in England.
"The decision was not easy for me.
"They offered me an excellent contract. West Ham offered me more money than Fulham."
Boa Morte is ready for the challenge of trying to help West Ham avoid relegation.
"I have always given my best for Fulham and now I begin a new era in my life," added Boa Morte. "A complicated challenge in my career.
"West Ham are in the relegation zone, but I believe that it is possible to recover so that we can stay in the Premier League."
