West Ham have completed the permanent signing of goalkeeper Stephen Henderson from Portsmouth.

The 24-year-old moved to Upton Park on loan in March and has now signed a three-year deal after leaving Pompey for an undisclosed fee.

Henderson was on the bench behind regular number one Rob Green, who will soon be out of contract, as West Ham secured promotion with a 2-1 win over Blackpool in Saturday's play-off final at Wembley.

He told the club's official website: "I'm chuffed to bits to get it wrapped up. I'm a very happy man.

"It's been absolutely brilliant since I joined and it obviously topped it off on Saturday with us getting to the Premier League."
