West Ham are understood to be close to signing Valencia winger Sofiane Feghouli on a free transfer.
Jack Sullivan announced on Twitter on Sunday that the club was close to completing a deal for an international winger and it could be confirmed within 12 days.

Then the ever-reliable @ExWHUEmployee revealed in his weekly column that the player Jack was talking about is Feghouli, who is out of contract this summer.
The 26-year-old is a highly-rated right winger who has impressed heavily in La Liga over the past couple of years.
Last season he contributed four goals and two assists in 29 first team appearances for Valencia.
The Algeria international is a tricky player with lots of skills in his locker, and is capable of taking on and beating players.
@ExWHUEmployee also claimed the club are keeping tabs on more wingers than initially planned this summer because it’s believed the right-back targets don’t look likely to join and Bilic is willing to stick with options he already has in his squad.
Transfermarkt.com value Feghouli at £11.25m.
