Lucas Perez has left West Ham to sign for Alaves for an undisclosed fee.

Sky Sports News understands the Spanish club have agreed a €2.5m (£2.21m) fee for Perez, who has scored six goals in 19 appearances for West Ham since joining from Arsenal in 2018.

Personal terms were not expected to be a problem and the Spaniard completed the move after passing a medical.

West Ham have included a 30 per cent sell on clause in the deal, according to Sky sources.

Perez joined West Ham on a three-year deal in 2018 but has struggled to secure a regular first-team place at the London Stadium, with Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez largely preferred up front.

The 30-year-old returns to Spain with Alaves, who finished 11th in La Liga last season.
