West Ham paid a transfer fee thought to be worth £5.5m to sign attacking midfielder Edimilson Fernandes from FC Sion.
Fernandes is the cousin of former Manchester City and Leicester midfielder Gelson Fernandes. The 20-year-old came through the youth system at FC Sion and has since made 48 first-team appearances for the Swiss club, scoring two goals.
Fernandes made his debut for the Switzerland under-21 team in March 2016 in a 1-1 draw with England. In his second game, on 2nd September 2016 he scored his first international goal in a 3-0 win against Kazakhstan in Biel/Bienne.
