West Ham United have confirmed that Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Darren Randolph has re-signed for the club after a two-and-a-half year spell at Middlesbrough.

Bray native Randolph has joined the Hammers on a three-and-a-half year deal after leaving Boro for an undisclosed fee.

While at West Ham previously, the 32-year-old played made 42 appearances for the club over two seasons before he left in 2017.

“I’m delighted to be back at West Ham United,” the Irish international said.  

“I had two great years at the Club previously and still have a lot of friends here, so I had no hesitation in coming back,” he added.

“West Ham is a massive club, with fantastic supporters and an excellent squad of players.

“It’s a great challenge for me and I am really looking forward to working with the goalkeepers here and helping the team in any way I can. 

“I’d like to thank everyone at Middlesbrough – the management, staff, players and fans – for their support. I had a great time there and wish them all the very best for the rest of the season.

“This opportunity was simply too good to turn down, though. It’s a great feeling to be back in the Premier League with such a fantastic club, and I can’t wait to get started.”
