West Ham United have completed the signing of winger Said Benrahma from Brentford on Friday evening.

The Irons have completed an initial loan deal for the Algerian international, and have the obligation to make it permanent at the end of this season.

It was changed to a loan deal after Benrahma failed his first medical on Thursday, something which was resolved on Friday.

BBC Sport have shared the obligations included in the deal, with the Irons paying an initial £5million to seal the loan switch.

It is reported that West Ham will then need to spend £20million with an added £5million in clauses to turn the deal permanent next summer.

David Moyes has put his faith in the former Brentford man, handing him the number nine shirt at the London Stadium.

This is the second star player to arrive from the Championship this year, and there will be hopes he can follow in the footsteps of Jarrod Bowen.

Benrahma has been involved in 50 goals in the past two seasons in the Championship and has been the standout player in the second-tier.

The Algerian was delighted to seal his switch to the London Stadium, claiming a chat with Moyes sealed the deal due to his expectations.

Arthur Masuaku has shared the squad reaction, claiming he is welcome as long as he doesn’t nutmeg him in training tomorrow – signs he has seen what Benrahma can deliver already.
