Although the fee is officially undisclosed, Mainz are understood to have paid in the region of ?8million for the Swiss international who signed for West Ham three years ago in a ?5million switch from FC Sion.

Fernandes, who was signed by Slaven Bilic made a total of 23 starts for the Hammers during his two seasons at the club and a further 25 appearances from the bench.
