Hammers bring in Benramha from Brentford

Algerian frontman, Said Benramaha, has joined West Ham United on a loan deal spanning to the end of the current campaign with the East Londoners obliged to make the transfer permanent during the closed season.

The 25-year-old found the nett on 30 occasions during his two-years at Griffin Park, helping Brentford to the Championship play-off final last season.

It is believed the Hammers will pay the West Londoners a loan fee in the region of £4m with the completed deal worth approaching £30m.

Speaking to www.whufc.com about the move, Benramha enthused: “I’m very, very happy to be a part of this team.

“West Ham is a historic club, which has been in the Premier League for a very long time. It included and still includes good players. It’s a massive club in England.

“I spoke to the manager, so I know exactly what he expects from me. I’ll try to meet his expectations on the pitch because he’s put faith in me and hopefully I can give it back on the pitch.

“I like this prospect [of playing in the Premier League]! I play football to enjoy myself first and foremost, but it’s always enjoyable to know you’re joining the most-watched league in the world, so I’m definitely looking forward to showing what I can do.”
