Sofiane Feghouli has expressed his delight at signing for West Ham United on social media site Twitter.

Feghouli penned a three-year contract at West Ham yesterday, after his contract at Valencia had expired.

The Algerian international is expected to play a key role for Slaven Bilic’s side next term, and he appears excited about the challenge ahead at the Olympic Stadium.

Feghouli is likely to be handed a right-wing role for West Ham next term, and his signing is a statement of intent.

The 27-year-old has shown a great amount of skill through his performances for Valencia in La Liga over recent times.

West Ham owner David Sullivan has already expressed his delight that Feghouli has signed, and more arrivals are expected in the coming weeks.

West Ham are known to be chasing a striker, with Alexandre Lacazette believed to be high up on their transfer wishlist.

Feghouli is West Ham’s second signing of the summer, following the arrival of Havard Nordtveit last month.
