Javier Hernandez has left West Ham for Sevilla in a reported €7.7million (£7m) deal, becoming the Spanish club's 12th signing of the transfer window.

Javier Hernandez has thanked West Ham fans on Twitter, after he sealed a deadline day move to La Liga outfit Sevilla.

Hernandez was the last remaining West Ham striker from last season, with Marko Arnautovic, Lucas Perez and Andy Carroll having all departed earlier in the summer.

According to the club's website, the Mexico global penned a three-year contract with the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium dwellers to end his two-and-a-half season stint with Hammers. ESPN added that the star striker is planning to extend his career in Europe for at least three more seasons.

On Monday morning, Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said reports from the Abaco Islands suggested the devastation was "unprecedented". Adam Douty, a meteorologist with AccuWeather, says Dorian will move as slowly as 1 or 2 mph "for the next 12 hours or so".

The Mexico worldwide, who also played for Manchester United and Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen, is no stranger to La Liga, having played for Real Madrid on a season-long loan in the 2014-15 season.

He also reinforces Sevilla's attack after Wissam Ben Yedder was sold to Monaco and Pablo Sarabia to Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

West Ham are set to receive close to £8m for the forward, who has featured in two Premier League games this season.
