Feghouli close to Hammers switch

Valencia attacking midfielder Sofiane Feghouli is on the verge of joining Premier League outfit West Ham United.

According to L’Equipe, the English club are a matter of hours away from securing the Algeria international, who arrived at Mestalla in May 2010 on a free transfer from Grenoble.

The 26-year-old is expected to undergo a medical on Monday after running down his contract with the Spanish club, having scored 20 goals in 146 games in his time with Los Che.

Recent reports in Spain suggested the likes of Sevilla, Inter Milan, Manchester United, Villarreal and Fenerbahce were all interested in Feghouli, but it appears the Hammers have won the race for his signature and he is set to put pen to paper on a three-year deal.
