Pablo Fornals has completed a £6.8m move from West Ham to Spanish side Real Betis.
The deal for the midfielder, 27, was set to go through on transfer deadline day but was delayed after a “computer problem” on the Hammers’ side.
The switch has now been completed, ending the Spain international’s four-and-a-half-year stay at the Hammers.
“Everyone at West Ham would like to thank Pablo for everything he has given to the club,” West Ham said.
Fornals made 202 appearances at West Ham after joining from Villarreal in 2019.
He has struggled to gain a regular spot this season following the arrivals of Mohammed Kudus and James Ward-Prowse in the summer, starting only four Premier League games in 2023-24.
West Ham triggered a one-year option on Fornals’ contract in December, but it was always likely they would let him leave if the right bid was received.
