West Ham have confirmed the permanent sale of Javier Hernandez to Sevilla. Chicharito leaves West Ham to join Spanish club Sevilla on a three-year deal. He spent two seasons with West Ham but has now left the club on a permanent deal.

The Mexico international joined West Ham in 2017 after leaving Bayer Leverkusen. During his time at West Ham, Hernandez scored 17 goals. He netted eight times in his first season and then scored eight again in his second season.

Chicharito signed off with a goal in his last ever outing for the Irons, scoring in the 1-1 draw with Brighton. But he has now returned to Spain, where he previously represented Real Madrid.

The 31-year-old’s three-year deal at West Ham was expiring next summer. When Sevilla submitted an offer just before deadline day, West Ham’s board thought it was too good to turn down. His hefty wages are off the books and the club have received a transfer fee for the striker.

But opinion has been mixed in reaction to Chicharito’s departure. Here are some of the best tweets.
