West Ham United is set to make Norway midfielder Havard Nordtveit its first signing when the transfer window opens on July 1.

Nordtveit's contract at Borussia Monchengladbach, the German Bundesliga side, runs out at the end of the season.

The 25-year-old joined Monchengladbach in December 2010 from Arsenal, but will now return to London on a five-year-deal at the Olympic Stadium.

He said: "It has always been a dream to play in the Premier League and now I have a big opportunity to do that."
