West Ham United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are hoping that rumours in today’s Metro are exactly that.
The publication claim that Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon could be set to kick-start his career at Upton Park but fan rivalries mean this news hasn’t gone down all that well in here.
The 27-year old midfielder wasn’t even close to entering Roy Hodgson’s thoughts for a place in this summers’ World Cup following a pretty average season at White Hart Lane in which he scored just one goal.
Lennon cost the North London side just £1 million from Leeds United way back when and has been there for the past seven seasons.
In that time he was taken to two World Cups during a 21-game international career but it now seems like that England career could be over, just like his time at Spurs.
Sunderland are also interested in signing the pacy winger after they survived the perils of a relegation this season and will be investing in their squad to ensure that a club of their size puts in a performance to match.
West Ham fans. Would you accept Aaron Lennon as one of your own or are the links to rivals Tottenham just too much to forget? Let us know your thoughts below.
