Although the summer transfer window is yet to open, West Ham United have already completed their fifth signing ahead of the 2016/17 season, as Algerian winger Sofiane Feghouli has arrived, as his contract at Spanish outfit Valencia has expired.

He has signed a three-year deal with the Irons and will join the squad for pre-season training on 1 July.

The 26-year-old becomes the third senior player that the Hammers have acquired in the close season after already making Manuel Lanzini's move to the club permanent, as well as securing a deal for Havard Nordtveit.

It was reported by Sky Sports News on Monday that manager Slaven Bilic had told Turkish TV that he would be interested in bringing two of his former Besiktas players to East London so, when this deal was announced earlier today, it might have come as a shock to many Hammers' fans.

The 26-year-old player could be seen as a direct replacement for Victor Moses, whose loan deal from Chelsea was ended by West Ham at the end of last term but he is likely to face competition from Michail Antonio, if he reverts to his preferred role next season.

Feghouli becomes the second player signed from Valencia this summer after the transfer of youngster Toni Martinez was completed at the end of April.

The winger scored 42 goals during six seasons in Spain, as he made 243 appearances. He also netted 11 times in 40 games for his country.

Everyone connected with West Ham I'm sure hopes he has a very successful career with the club.
