The Czech Republic international joined the Hammers from Slavia Prague in the summer transfer window for around £5.4 million (BBC).
And he has already established himself as a cult hero at the London Stadium.
The 28-year-old is a brilliant defender. He also offers so much going forward, with three assists to his name in 19 Premier League appearances for West Ham so far (Transfermarkt).
What an unbelievable bargain Coufal has proven to be for just £5.4 million.
The Czech ace, who earns £35k-a-week according to Football League FC, has helped transform the mentality of the players at West Ham.
The 28-year-old and his mate Tomas Soucek have injected a real warrior-like mentality into David Moyes’s team. And it really is great to see.
He was superb last night. Coufal had Jack Grealish in his pocket all night, so much so that Aston Villa’s talisman actually had to switch positions in order to get away from the Hammers ace.
