Brynjarsdóttir, who has made 90 appearances for her country, scoring 28 goals, told whufc.com: “It’s a dream to be joining the club that I have supported all of my life.

“West Ham United has always been a big part of my life, so I can’t wait to get started and to help the team to reach the level we deserve.”

Her former teams include Bayern Munich, Icelandic League champions Valur and Portland Thorns in the NWSL.

Hammers’ manager Olli Harder said: “I’m really pleased to have Dagný on board as our first January signing at West Ham.

“Team changes are inevitable at this time, but I am really confident that we are moving in a positive direction both in the mid- to long-term, while making the necessary changes to start picking up more points and climbing the table in the short-term.

“Dagný is a strong, athletic, dynamic midfielder and she will bring tremendous value on and off the pitch, and I can’t wait to see her thrive here at West Ham United.”
