The midfielder was linked with a move to Old Trafford last weekend as well as Roma and former club Lazio but the 24 year old is likely to remain at Upton Park.
Speaking to Itasport Allessandro Beltrami said,
“His price tag is high – only a few teams can afford to spend 15million euros in January. I don’t think that, at this time, either Roma or Lazio have this economic possibility. Only one other team in the Premier League (Manchester City) could spend so much in this market.”
Beltrami feels that this, coupled with the fact that the Swiss international has struck up a good relationship with Gianfranco Zola, means the midfielder will will probably extend his stay with West Ham having joined in July 2008,
“Valon is well at West Ham and we are discussing the renewal of his contract, he is loved by the fans and he has a good relationship with the manager.”
Behrami has impressed for West Ham this season in his 12 appearances as the Irons battle relegation.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
