West Ham have agreed to sign Valencia winger Sofiane Feghouli on a three-year contract.
The 26-year-old free agent had a lucrative offer from China, plus proposals from France and Spain but has been lured by the prospect of playing under Slaven Bilic at West Ham's new Olympic Stadium home.
Sevilla, Villarreal, Inter Milan and Fenerbahce were all among the clubs who had sounded out his representatives but the exciting Algeria international has made his choice.
'I am very happy to sign for the Hammers and for Slaven Bilic,' Feghouli said. 'The history of the club is important for me in my decision. 'Playing in the Premier League is very important for players in their careers and I am happy to play for the Hammers.'
Co-chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold are continuing to work on the prospective transfer of Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon with a £32million deal on the table for the France international forward.
