West Ham United have completed the signing of Said Benrahma on a season-long loan from Brentford, with an agreement to make the transfer permanent.

The 25-year-old winger was one of the leading players in the Championship last season, scoring 17 goals in 43 league matches as Brentford reached the Championship playoff final.

In total, he scored 30 goals in 94 matches for the Bees, providing 31 assists. 

“I like this prospect [of playing in the Premier League]," Benrahma told the club's official website.

"I play football to enjoy myself first and foremost, but it’s always enjoyable to know you’re joining the most-watched league in the world, so I’m definitely looking forward to showing what I can do."

Benrahma is West Ham's fourth senior signing of the summer transfer window, after Tomas Soucek, Vladimir Coufal and Craig Dawson.

The Algeria international joins ahead of a trip to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
