Said Benrahma ‘fails West Ham medical’ to put £25m move from Brentford in jeopardy on deadline-day
- Said Benrahma was expected to complete a £25m deal to join West Ham
- West Ham have reportedly been dealt a late blow ahead of Friday’s deadline
- The Brentford winger is said to have failed his medical on Friday morning
- West Ham are still hoping to resolve the transfer before the 5pm deadline
Said Benrahma’s £25m move to West Ham could be in jeopardy after he reportedly failed his medical.
However the Daily Mirror have reported that there has been a late setback in the move for the Algerian star.
Said Benrahma was expected to join West Ham from Brentford before the domestic deadline
West Ham are understood to have discovered the news early on Friday morning but are still working to make the sure deal goes through before the domestic deadline shuts at 5pm.
The Daily Mirror have reported that a Brentford source told them: ‘Nothing has been done yet. Conversations are ongoing.’
Benrahma ironed out issues over a bonus payment with Brentford earlier in the week, while personal terms were discussed on Wednesday evening.
Benrahma was a standout performer in the Championship last season, netting 17 goals as well as recording 10 assists as they just missed out on promotion.
The deal will come as another huge blow to the Bees, who had already lost Ollie Watkins to Aston Villa in a £33m deal early last month.
