West Ham fans on Twitter firmly against Defoe signing

West Ham finally look to be moving in the right direction under Manuel Pellegrini. Marko Arnautovic and Andriy Yarmolenko are looking like a quality pairing up front and results are starting to go their way. However, according to reliable West Ham twitter account, ExWHUEmployee, the club is in contact with Jermain Defoe over a move.

At the age of 36, it’s unlikely that Defoe has anything more than one year left in him. Back in his day the poaching talents of Defoe were quality and he was a man who would guarantee a lot of goals over the course of a season. The last time Defoe managed a return of over 20 goals was way back in the 2013/14 season when he played for both Tottenham and Toronto FC over the season.

However, Defoe is a face that the fans know and he knows the club well already. His experience would bring something to the dressing room and a move to The London Stadium would give Defoe a chance to improve his record of 29 goals in 94 appearances for The Hammers that he managed during his 1999 and 2004 before he made the move to Tottenham Hotspur, the club he’s best remembered for being at.

The Hammers would be keen to see their club take a pass on Defoe as they’d much rather see the money going towards a younger and better option.
