West Ham United have signed 24-year-old Swedish attacking midfielder Marika Bergman Lundin from BK Häcken.

She was a regular for Häcken in both the Damallsvenskan and the Champions League since joining them in 2022 and helped them reach the UWCL quarter-finals this season.

Bergman Lundin told whufc.com: “It feels so good to be at West Ham and I’m really excited to get started. I wanted a fresh challenge and when West Ham showed an interest, it felt like the right place for me.

“The women’s game in England has grown over the last few years and it’s been nice to see from a far, but it makes you want to be a part of it.

“I’m a player who likes to be on the ball and be creative with my passes. I also like a good tackle! I want to win everything and help the team however I can.”

Manager Rehanne Skinner said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming Marika to the club. We have been impressed with Marika’s consistency for some time, both in Sweden and in the Champions League.

“Marika is a forward thinking, creative midfielder who’s work ethic and tenacity aligns perfectly with our playing style. Marika will also provide additional experience in our midfield that will help to strengthen the squad moving forwards.”
