West Ham make permanent signing

Claret and Hugh can now reveal that West Ham have now made the signing of Said Benrahma permanent and his registration has now moved from Brentford to West Ham.

West Ham paid a £4.25m loan fee to Brentford and under the terms of the new deal will pay an additional £21.75m in instalments with the player signing a five year contract.

An official announcement is expected soon by the club to confirm the Hammers second signing of the winter after landing Danish Centre Back Frederick Alves,

The completed deal allows one domestic loan space available to fill and it believed that West Ham are in advanced talks with Manchester United over the loan of Jesse Lingard.

The Red Devils are said to want a large loan fee on top of paying his full wages thought to be around £75,000 per week. No agreement has yet been reached with the Hammer hoping United will drop the required loan fee to a more acceptable level.

  1. Thanks for revealing this news claret and Hugh. When will it be officially announced by the club?

  2. Why do we need Lingard. Can he cover for Antonio. I doubt it.

    • Think we can leave that to Moyes eh?

    • Don’t think there is anyone out there to cover for Antonio. If Michail is out, we just play with what we have which may then be a bit of a different style. We adapt – that’s life.
      Can’t think why we would want Jesse, though. Unless he was very cheap and easy to move on if he’s not what we thought. If he turns out to be brilliant – might change my mind. But that is true of all our signings.

  3. Great signings Sean Benrahma will become a top player for us I think he is still learning and improving each game. The manager and staff will get there message across to him on what is needed. Alves looks a good prospect who wants to learn and could turn out to be a good addition to the team. I do hope our supporters realise that GSB have backed the manager and raised the funds for this to happen especially in these times without any revenue coming in
