West Ham United’s latest signing Said Benrahma is proving a big hit already without having kicked a ball in claret and blue.

Ferdinand sends powerful message to new boy Benrahma about West Ham

West Ham fans are hugely excited by the new playmaker and were delighted the club finally got the signing over the line on domestic deadline day last week.

Benrahma impressed fans further by giving some of a loyalty bonus paid to him by Brentford to over 100 of the Bees background staff (Sky Sports & Brentford FC).

Blowing bubbles, buzzing, Benrahma

And Hammers fans loved it when they saw video footage of the Algerian on social media looking so happy when his signing had been confirmed.

To top it off, the star showed he is very much down-to-earth as he brought his mum along to his unveiling, and planted a kiss on her head while holding up his new West Ham shirt.

Benrahma has come into a squad that is on cloud nine right now.

West Ham have beaten Wolves 4-0, Leicester 3-0 and set a new Premier League record in the 3-3 draw at Spurs by being the first team to come from 3-0 down as late as the 81st minute and not lose.

Insider lifts lid on Lanzini applause and Benrahma’s question for new teammates

West Ham did it in style too with the goal of the season so far from Manuel Lanzini.

It was a long-awaited contribution from Lanzini, who has simply not been himself since his injury two years ago.

As a result the mood at the West Ham training ground this week has been buzzing. That’s according to insider ExWHUemployee.

The reliable Twitter and podcast personality has revealed the Argentine was saluted by the squad in training.

And he claims Benrahma had a question for his new teammates.

“Apparently when Manu turned up they all applauded him,” ExWHUemployee said.

‘Does this happen every week?’

“It was a really good vibe and everyone was buzzing. Benrahma … apparently said to the squad: ‘Does this happen every week?’ In relation to the Spurs game.”

Not quite like that Said.

But what the 26-year-old will soon come to learn is that there is never a dull moment at West Ham.

And when the Hammers are on a roll, the club can take some stopping, just like in the 2015/16 campaign.

Was Moyes ‘up yours’ gesture meant for Mourinho, mockers or GSB?
