With the West Ham United fans in the Transfer Tavern largely frustrated about their lack of activity in the market thus far, our resident Irons could do with some cheering up.
So, while reports from the Daily Mirror have little to do in regards to any potential big-name arrivals, they do hint at an exit for one of the club’s flop signings.
Indeed, the Hammers are reportedly ready to sell Scotland international Robert Snodgrass this summer, just six months after signing him from Hull City. The 29-year-old has struggled to wholly convince in claret and blue, with manager Slaven Bilic usually selecting him from the bench.
While he impressed with the Tigers during the first half of the campaign, the former Leeds United man hasn’t been able to settle in the capital it seems.
Newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion are understood to retain an interest in the attacking midfielder, while Burnley were reportedly keen during the winter window. Whether or not the Clarets reignite their apparent interest remains to be seen, though the Hammers in the bar are hoping they do.
Many our east London locals are desperate to see the club finally bring in the big name targets they so often talk about, so raising funds by selling Snodgrass would undoubtedly be helpful.
