Brentford fans have been reacting on Twitter this morning, as West Ham confirmed the permanent signing of winger, Said Benrahma.
The Algerian trickster has joined the Hammers on a full-time deal now. He turns his summer loan move into a permanent one, with the Hammers set to pay around £26m for Benrahma.
David Moyes has used Benrahma on a regular basis this season. The skillful winger has started half of the 12 games he’s appeared in in the Premier League, although he has failed to score as yet.
But signing Benrahma permanently is a smart move from the Hammers. The incoming arrival on Jesse Lingard on loan means they needed to free up a spot. Tying Benrahma to that full-time contract does just that.
Brentford fans, though, have been discussing his departure on Twitter, with some unhappy at the club once again letting a top talent slip the net it seems.
Such a lack of ambition, we need players and you sell another and give up the option to buy 6 months early 😤😤 frank out

We have two fit CBs so can we splash out a mil or two from the Saïd money? Even a loan would be good enough…
