New club across the Channel for Maxwel Cornet. A year after his transfer to Burnley from Olympique Lyonnais, the striker signed on Friday August 5 with West Ham. ” The 25-year-old, who can play as a left winger, full-back, or full-back, arrives (…) on a five-year deal with an optional extra year “, say the Hammers in a press release. Top scorer for the Clarets in 2021-2022 with nine goals scored in 28 matches in all competitions, the Ivorian will therefore not play in the Championship, the second level of British football, Burnley having been relegated. The amount of his transfer has not been disclosed, but according to British media, West Ham and Maxwel Cornet have activated the release clause of 17.5 million pounds (around 20 million euros) which allowed the player to leave in case of relegation.
