Our West Ham fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that Slaven Bilic will have learned from his mistakes in the transfer market to do some better business in the summer.
Indeed, when tasked with building on last season’s strong showing ahead of a European campaign he blew it with some terrible buys and that helped lead to this less than successful 2017/18.
A repeat, then, will not be acceptable but whilst we wait to see who comes in to help the senior side it seems like a decision has been made on one young player that was on trial in east London.
Alexander Alp had been training with the Hammers but, according to football.london the club are not going to offer him a permanent deal to stay.
Clearly, then, the youngster did not do enough to impress the Hammers whilst he was there and so the club will have to look elsewhere in terms of young players for the academy.
Thoughts on this one, West Ham fans? Let us know below!
