West Ham have confirmed the appointment of Mario Husillos as their director of football.

The Argentine, 59, joins the Hammers on a three-year deal after fulfilling the same role at Malaga, where he previously worked with new West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini.

Husillos is looking forward to resuming his relationship with Pellegrini in east London.

"West Ham United is a club with huge ambition". The challenge to help deliver that ambition is what really attracted me to the role. Because you have a lot of dissatisfied West Ham fans with that stadium and I think the only way you make that stadium work is by putting a top team on the pitch.

"I know the manager well and know he wants to deliver an exciting brand of attacking football".

The Chilean coach should look to reunite with his former Manchester City super-sub Stevan Jovetic this summer, after signing him to the Premier League champions back in 2013/14. "We had great success together at Malaga, and he is someone that I have huge respect for".

"I have seen West Ham play many times before".

It has been unclear in recent seasons who has been responsible for recruiting new players, with co-owner David Sullivan often reported to be driving the signings.
