West Ham stands to receive 10% of any future sell-on fee should Lyon transfer Said Benrahma.

The Algerian winger and hero of West Ham’s Conference League triumph in Prague, officially joined the French side yesterday. This follows a successful loan spell last season after falling out of favour with then-manager David Moyes.

Lyon has revealed the full details of the transfer in a statement, though it’s likely that West Ham would have preferred this information to remain confidential.

Lyon FC Statement on Said Benrahma:

“The Algerian international, who arrived during the winter transfer window on a paid loan of £5.1 million (approximately €6 million), is now a Lyon player for the next three seasons!

OL are delighted to retain Said Benrahma in their squad. After seamlessly integrating into the club, the 28-year-old forward has played 15 games and scored 3 goals in just 4 months. Benrahma is now contracted with OL until June 30, 2027, with an optional additional year.

West Ham retains a 10% profit-sharing clause on the capital gain in the event of a future transfer.”

    The interpretation on this is wrong. It is not 10% of any future transfer fee it’s 10% of any profit that might be made on a future transfer fee.

    The final two lines say it: West Ham retains a 10% profit-sharing clause on the capital gain in the event of a future transfer.

    Nothing at all if he’s sold for less than his purchase price, 10% of any profit made if he’s sold for more than his purchase price. Likely either nothing or peanuts.
