Official: Benrahma joins West Ham/Liverpool duo to the Championship

England’s domestic transfer deadline day saw a number of late deals involving Premier League clubs pushed over the line.

Hammers get their man

The most high-profile move no doubt comes in the form of Said Benrahma’s West Ham switch.
