West Ham bringing forward plans to buy outright Said Benrahma

West Ham are ready to bring forward plans to buy outright Said Benrahma.

The Daily Mail says West Ham are converting Benrahma's loan from Brentford into a permanent move to pave the way for Jesse Lingard's arrival from Manchester United.

The deal had been set for the end of the season, but will now be brought forward with a fee of around £20million, plus £5m in add ons, and is likely to be paid in instalments.

Once Benrahma's deal is made permanent, West Ham will free up a domestic loan space for Lingard, who is keen to join David Moyes' in-form side.

Both domestic loan slots are currently taken, with Watford defender Craig Dawson and Benrahma currently blocking a temporary move for Lingard.
