However, the Hammers later confirmed they have secured the signing of the Algeria worldwide on loan with an obligation for a permanent deal.

This is not to say he is the next Paolo Di Canio or Tevez, but it is the case that he offers the sort of thrilling footwork and imagination that so excites the supporters of all clubs, and West Ham fans in particular.

Former West Ham winger Sinclair has welcomed Benrahma to the London Stadium and has urged the 25-year-old, who can also play as a forward, to work hard.

As reported by BBC Sport, the Algeria global winger joined the Hammers from Championship club Brentford on summer transfer deadline day.

West Ham United concluded their transfer business yesterday with the signature of Said Benrahma from Championship side Brentford.

With time running out in the window, the Hammers face a race against time to get a deal across the line for the Algerian. It included and still includes good players.

"I'm very, very happy to be a part of this team", Benrahma told the club's website.

"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.

Having been priced out of a move for Burnley centre-half James Tarkowski, David Moyes instead brought in experienced Premier League operator Craig Dawson on loan from Watford.

However, news of the failed medical is a real "Hammer" blow to West Ham's chances of capturing their man who have they have been interested in for the last few weeks.

The Algeria global began his career in France with Ligue 1 side Nice and made 18 appearances for the first team before moving to Brentford in July 2018.
