West Ham have completed the signing of Saïd Benrahma on a permanent deal, which clears the way for Jesse Lingard's loan move from Manchester United.
Premier League rules only permit clubs to have a maximum of two domestic loan signings within their squad.
Algerian international Benrahma initially joined the Hammers on loan from Championship side Brentford in October but the 25-year-old has put pen to paper on a contract until 2026.
Since making his debut at Liverpool on October 31st, Benrahma has made 14 appearances for the Hammers.
