Said Benrahma Join West Ham on permanent transfer while Lingard deal edges closer

Said Benrahma joined West Ham on Friday morning, with the club confirming the Algerian’s permanent transfer from Brentford. He was on a season-long loan with an option to purchase in the summer transfer window.

The Hammers had signed Benrahma in October from Championship high flyers Brentford. In order to free up a domestic loan spot to allow them to move for Jesse Lingard of Manchester United, the club brought forward the Algerian international transfer.

It is also confirmed that Lingard and his parent club had reached terms with The Hammers late on Thursday night. Lingard will be qualified for West Ham’s game against Liverpool at London Stadium on Sunday if the paperwork is finalized before noon. Lingard previously played under Hammers boss David Moyes at Old Trafford during the manager’s tenure in charge.

The Hammers are hoping to get the sort of form out of the attacking midfielder that saw him play a key role in assisting England in the 2018 semi-finals of the World Cup.
