Felipe Anderson rejoins Lazio from West Ham on permanent deal

The attacking midfielder Felipe Anderson has rejoined Lazio from West Ham on a permanent deal, the Premier League side announced on Friday, as he returns to the Serie A club after three years.

The Brazilian signed for West Ham in 2018 for a club record fee £35m, and scored 12 goals in 73 appearances.

There were reports that West Ham would receive about £4m from Lazio but the London club had added a sell-on clause into the deal. The 28-year-old spent last season on loan at Porto where he featured only 10 times.

Anderson spent five seasons with Lazio from 2013 to 2018, having moved to Italy from Santos.
