"Felipe has a very natural and skilful ability, in the traditional style of Brazilian football, but has proven at Lazio that he also has the strength and mentality to play at the top level in European football", Chilean manager Pellegrini added.

Manuel Pellegrini is confident that West Ham United will sign more players over the summer amid injury blows to Andy Carroll and Winston Reid.

Anderson has joined fellow recruits Ryan Fredericks, Lukasz Fabianski, Issa Diop, Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko and Fabian Balbuena at the London Stadium.

Co-chairmen David Gold and David Sullivan were repeatedly criticised by fans last season over a lack of spending.

"It does mean that we have lost two senior players in key areas, though, and we'll continue to work hard with the owners to make further additions to strengthen the playing squad, beyond the five new signings already confirmed".

"He's [Pellegrini] a very understated personality", Martin said on talkSPORT.

"It has been a very successful week for us with the arrival of four new players, and we look forward to implementing their qualities into our plans and preparations".

West Ham begin their Premier League season on August 11 with a trip to Liverpool.
