West Ham United sign Ivory Coast international Maxwel Cornet

West Ham United is delighted to confirm the signing of Ivory Coast international Maxwel Cornet.

The 25-year-old, who can play as a left winger, wing-back or full-back, joins from Burnley on a five-year contract with a further one-year option for an undisclosed fee.

A proven and exciting performer at the highest level, Cornet has made more than 300 senior club appearances with Metz, Olympique Lyonnais and Burnley, netting 61 goals and assisting 31 more, and has appeared 29 times for his country, scoring six times.

A standout performer for Burnley in the Premier League last season, Cornet – who will wear the number 14 shirt – is relishing the opportunity to continue his already impressive career at London Stadium.

“It’s a new step for me to join this big Club and I’m really happy to be here, to be part of the project for the Club. I’m just excited to start,” he said.

“Everyone knows the level here in the Premier League is very high and I want to play here for that, so I’m really happy to be here for the next stage in my career.

“It will be amazing to play in front of 62,500 fans at London Stadium. I played here for Burnley last season and I can’t wait to experience it as a West Ham player.”
