West Ham have signed Sofiane Feghouli on a free transfer from Valencia.

Feghouli will provide competition in attack for West Ham, who are to move into the Olympic Stadium ahead of next season.

West Ham also have Enner Valencia, Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll to call on up front, and have been linked to more players over the summer, including Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette.

Feghouli is mainly used on the wings, and scored five goals for Valencia in his last season.

Feghouli has signed a three-year contract and will join the club, who are moving to the Olympic Stadium for the start of the 2016/17 season, on July 1.

Speaking to the club's official website he said: "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."
