Far from happy with life right now, the West Ham United fans propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern can often be found drowning their sorrows often enough as they lament their move to the London Stadium.
The Irons’ problems are deep-rooted right now and, while their new home has barely been the most welcoming, the fact none of their summer signings look like sound investments is also a big problem.
Which is why reports from Tuttosport have come as little surprise to our east London locals.
They’ve revealed that the Hammers have agreed a deal to sell summer flop Sofiane Feghouli to Serie A giants Roma, just six months after he arrived in the Big Smoke.
Despite some good form for Valencia, the Algerian has struggled in claret and blue and is reportedly on his way to the Italian capital after a thoroughly unhappy spell.
Injured for the start of the Premier League campaign, the 27-year-old has failed to find his best form and was only able to make 16 appearances in total for West Ham, notching just one goal in the Europa League qualifiers.
It’s fair to say our locals here in the bar aren’t too bothered about the notion of Feghouli leaving so soon after his arrival, such is the degree of their disappointment.
