Said Benrahma: West Ham ta kusan daukar dan kwallon Brentford

Said Benrahma scores for Brentford against Fulham

Aston Villa have also shown an interest in the 25-year-old but there has been no approach by the Midlands club.

The 30-year-old share his delight in his new move and affirmed his excitement at being back in top-flight football following the relegation of the Hornets at the end of last season.

"I think if you look at the amount of money West Ham have spent on their wingers - Felipe Anderson, Fornals and all these kind of guys - they've not hit the ground running. He is a fantastic professional with proven quality and experience in the Premier League", Moyes said.

At that stage the Hammers had already agreed a deal worth £17million guaranteed and £8milion in add-ons with the Championship side, who had missed out on promotion in last season's Play Off Final.

"I know he will be a great addition to the dressing-room - he is a committed and determined character".

"Jarrod Bowen came in, I think he's been outstanding, they've got Antonio too but if one of these guys got injured, it's like who comes in?". "We've got a lot of experienced lads here anyway and to be joining this group of players is an exciting prospect, so I can't wait", he added.

It would be surprising if he stayed at Brentford after falling out with the club hierarchy.

West Ham are now at the tenth position in the Premier League and will next lock horns with Tottenham on Sunday.

Dawson then established himself as a regular starter at West Brom, initially as a right-back and then as a centre-back, and he had made 225 appearances for the Baggies before departing for then-Premier League Watford in summer 2019.
