Hammers Sign Ljungberg from Gunners

Sweden's Freddie Ljungberg is challenged by England's Wayne Rooney

Arsenal winger Freddie Ljungberg has completed his move to fellow London club West Ham United.

The 30-year-old Swede, the Gunners' longest-serving player since joining in 1998, follows star French striker Thierry Henry, who moved to Barcelona, in leaving the Emirates Stadium this summer.

Ljungberg played 325 times for Arsenal, scoring 72 goals, but lost his grip on a starting spot last season. No transfer fee or length of contract was immediately given.

He now joins Julien Faubert, Scott Parker, Craig Bellamy and Richard Wright in moving to Upton Park since the Hammers' dramatic last-day survival last season.
