West Ham United have made winger Said Benrahma’s loan deal from Brentford permanent for £20-million on a five-and-a-half-year contract.
“West Ham United are pleased to confirm Said Benrahma has completed his permanent transfer to the club,” the club said on their official website.
“The Algeria international attacking midfielder initially linked up with the Hammers on loan from EFL Championship side Brentford in October.
“Now, however, an agreement to make the deal permanent has been exercised, and the 25-year-old has put pen to paper on a contract until 2026.
“A product of the French club Nice, Benrahma excelled during two seasons with Brentford, scoring 30 goals and assisting 27 more, before moving to London Stadium.
“Since making his debut at Liverpool on 31 October, the No9 has made 14 appearances (including Crystal Palace) and registered assists in Premier League wins over Fulham and Aston Villa and the Emirates FA Cup fourth-round victory over Doncaster Rovers.
“Everyone at West Ham United would like to wish Saïd the very best as he continues his career in Claret and Blue.”
