West Ham midfielder Julien Faubert has completed his loan move to Real Madrid, the Primera Liga club have confirmed.
Faubert passed a medical in the Spanish capital on Saturday.
The 25-year-old joins Madrid on loan until the end of the season, with the Spanish club having an option to buy him on a permanent basis.
"Real Madrid and West Ham United have reached an agreement for the loan of the French player Julien Faubert until the end of this season," read a statement on the club website, www.realmadrid.com.
"The signed deal establishes a loan move until June 30, the date in which the technical staff of the club will decide if it suits them to exercise a right to buy the player for the next three years."
Faubert joined West Ham in 2007 from Bordeaux but soon suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon, which left him on the sidelines for the first half of last season.
Madrid have been searching for a right winger during the transfer window and were linked with the likes of Jermaine Pennant, Aaron Lennon and Antonio Valencia.
