West Ham beat Crystal Palace to sign Swansea midfielder Flynn Downes on five-year contract

West Ham have completed the signing of Swansea midfielder Flynn Downes on a five-year contract for a deal understood to be worth around £12million.

The 23-year-old joined the Swans from League One side Ipswich last summer on an initial four-year deal but is now on the move once again after excelling in south Wales and attracting plenty of transfer interest from Premier League clubs, including the Hammers.

The Brentwood-born central midfielder made his senior debut at Ipswich in 2017 and went on to make 99 appearances in all competitions for the club. Last season he played 32 games for Swansea in the Championship as they finished 15th under Russell Martin, ending the campaign with the best pass-completion percentage of all midfielders in the second division.
