Big Sam believes the Newcastle captain could play a major role in east London in reinstating West ham’s premiership status with an immediate return.
The scouser has had a fantastic season on Tyne side and has bagged 12 goals. The previous campaign witnessed him play a key role in the geordies instant bounce back up to the top flight where he netted 17 vital league goals along the way.
He currently has two years left on his contract at the club but has recently turned down a new deal. The reason being he isn’t happy with the two year extension they put on the table.
If you are a Newcastle fan, I’m sure the news of £6million for your captain is not what you want to be hearing. He is thought to be happy at the club and is a massive influence amongst the players and, at only 28 I think some agreement will be finalised before the new season begins, and i believe Kevin Nolan will still be leading the toon army out at St. James’s Park for the foreseeable future.
