A lot of West Ham fans are not happy with the latest surprising rumours which claim the club have only offered right-back Jeremy Ngakia a new one-year deal.
That is according to club insider @EXWHUemployee, speaking on the West Ham Way podcast (Wednesday, March 11th). Fans of the Irons have not had a lot to get excited about this season as the club battle relegation, but the breakthrough of the young defender is one thing for them to be positive about, and people are already very excited about the potential of the 19-year-old, even though he has only played four times in the Premier League (Transfermarkt).
You could argue that it is too quick to judge the player, but two of the appearances have come against Liverpool and one has also been against Arsenal, so fans have seen him battle against some of the best attackers in the Premier League.
Many Irons supporters therefore cannot believe that the club are reportedly set to offer such a short contract to a young player who already looks at home in the Premier League.
Here’s what some of them have said:
West Ham have offered Jeremy Ngakia a new one-year deal for next season.

1 year??? He’s played a couple of games and outperformed most other players. Unless it’s age related he deserves better

Should be getting a 4/5 yr deal for me we don’t need a new rb in the summer because of him

Can’t understand this. Either he’s good enough and we want him here a while, or he’s not but we want a decent pro contract to be able to make some money from his top performances thus far.

Deserves a much longer contract in my opinion.

1 year. Really now? If I were Ngakia I would never accept such an embarrassing and offending deal. GSB OUT
