Nikica Jelavic could make his West Ham United debut against Newcastle United after completing a move to Upton Park.

The Croatian frontman has left Hull City to sign a two-year deal with the Hammers, with the option of a further two years.

The 30-year-old scored against Newcastle last season in the 2-2 draw between Hull and the Magpies at St James’s Park.

West Ham and Newcastle face each other at Upton Park in each side’s first game after the international break, on September 14.
