Interest in his services has steadily grown since a string of inspired displays in the Champions League at the start of last season, bagging two goals in the group stages whilst averaging 2.2 created chances per match.

Indeed, recent reports from L’Equipe have claimed Sevilla, Villarreal, Inter Milan, Manchester United, Fenerbahçe and a club from the Super League were all in contention to sign the 26-year-old winger on a free transfer.

But the French publication reported earlier this week that Feghouli is set to sign for West Ham on a three-year contract and that has now been confirmed by the club on their official website.

Jack Sullivan, son of co-chairman David Sullivan, wrote on Twitter earlier today; “Feghouli has signed for West Ham for the next 3 years!!!”

Feghouli said upon putting pen to paper; “I am very happy to sign for the Hammers and for Slaven Bilic. 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.”
