The 37-year-old former England midfielder has been training with the Hammers since the start of July and today put pen to paper on a one-year deal.

West Ham-born Lee told the BBC Sport website: “It has taken me 20 years to get to West Ham.

"There is no other squad in Division One that I would rather be in.
