West Ham United have completed the signing of winger Maxwel Cornet from Burnley in a move worth £17.5million.

The Ivory Coast international has signed a five-year-deal at the London Stadium with an optional one-year extension and becomes David Moyes’ side‘s fifth signing of the summer transfer window following the acquisitions of Nayef Aguerd, Flynn Downes, Alphonse Areola and Gianluca Scamacca.

Cornet’s arrival comes off the back of a stunning debut season in the Premier League with the Clarets last year where he scored nine goals in 26 appearances in the top-flight despite being unable to keep the Clarets in England’s top-flight.

However, Cornet’s arrival comes too late to be involved for the Hammers in their opening Premier League match of the season against Manchester City at the London Stadium. The Ivorian will wear the number 14 shirt at the London Stadium.

Speaking on the deal, Moyes said: “We are delighted to welcome Maxwel to West Ham United. He is a versatile player with good experience, both in the Premier League and in European football, and will add strength and quality to our squad,” said Moyes.

“He made a big impact with his performances for Burnley last season and he has impressed me with his desire to improve and challenge himself further here at West Ham.

“We look forward to bringing Maxwel into the group and wish him all the best in his career with us.”
