Chamakh Joins West Ham On Loan

Arsenal have confirmed that striker Marouane Chamakh will join West Ham United on loan for the remainder of the season.

Reports earlier on Friday claimed that the player was close to a move and the Gunners have now confirmed that the striker will spend the rest of the season at Upton Park.

A statement on the club's official website read: "Striker Marouane Chamakh has joined West Ham United on loan for the remainder of the 2012/13 season.

"The Morocco international has featured 67 times for the Gunners since his arrival from Ligue 1 side Bordeaux in May 2010, netting on 14 occasions.

"With first-team appearances limited this term to the Capital One Cup - where Chamakh helped Arsenal to a dramatic fourth round 7-5 victory over Reading with an extra-time brace - and one Champions League outing, the 28-year-old heads to Upton Park for the opportunity of more regular competitive football.

"Chamakh will be ineligible for the Hammers’ Premier League visit to Emirates Stadium later this month.

"Everyone at Arsenal Football Club wishes Marouane well for his time with Sam Allardyce’s team."
