West Ham fans here in the Tavern are pretty happy with life under David Moyes, as they hope to bolster their current squad with signings under the Scot in the summer.
The Hammers have been a redefined team under former Manchester United manager David Moyes, as the criticism in his previous two managerial jobs have now been overshadowed by the brilliance at the London Stadium. Although, with a future in the Premier League still hanging in the balance for the Hammers, Moyes would love to see his side through to the summer with money there to be spent. And, with summer activity in mind for the club, according to reports in the Mirror, West Ham target Harry Arter dropped a big summer transfer hint after having a move to West Ham rejected in January.
The Bournemouth midfielder has put interested party West Ham on high alert for a possible move, after admitting he is ready to quit the Vitality Stadium in the summer. Indeed, the Hammers were keen on signing the Republic of Ireland international last month, but the Cherries were not willing to sell their out of favour star.
Indeed, after only managing to make 11 appearances for Eddie Howe’s side all season, the midfielder is less than impressed with how Bournemouth would rather see their second longest-serving player stagnate, after racking up over 250 appearances for the club. But, much to the pleasure of our local Hammers here in the Tavern, the midfielder’s recent comments will only go to boost the hopes of bringing the Irishman to the English capital in the future.
Of course, with emotions at an all time high for the 28-year-old, he gave his opinion on the current situation:
“When a player my age is not playing and someone who is desperate and just loves playing football, there comes a question over whether long term it is going to the right place for me.”
“Ultimately if I am not playing, there has to be a change — and I am sure the manager would understand that.
“If I don’t play between now and the end of the season and am a continued spectator then, naturally, there would a be a discussion.”
Harry Arter has been one of the most loyal players in the history of Bournemouth Football Club, so to be left out in the dark after seeking a move away must be a kick in the teeth for the 28-year-old. And, having played a huge part in Bournemouth’s rise to the Premier League, he’ll feel that the club has shown him masses of disrespect in what looks to be his final season on the south coast. However, West Ham United won’t complain with them looking like they’ll have finally got their man when the summer transfer window opens.
