West Ham: Darren Randolph ‘in talks’ to join Bournemouth

West Ham: Darren Randolph ‘in talks’ to join Bournemouth -Premier League News

West Ham United goalkeeper Darren Randolph is ‘in talks’ to join fellow Premier League side Bournemouth, according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth.

The Lowdown: Out of contract

The Republic of Ireland international first arrived at the London Stadium back in January 2020 where he’s since gone on to make 52 appearances for the Irons.

The 6 foot 2 shot-stopper, however, will be out of contract at the end of the season and hasn’t been offered an extension.

TalkSPORT reporter Alex Crook claimed that an exit was imminent on Tuesday, and following a further update, he now looks certain to depart before the end of the month.

The Latest: Randolph to Bournemouth?

Taking to Twitter, Sheth revealed that Randolph has officially entered discussions with Bournemouth ahead of a potential move to the south coast.

“Bournemouth in talks with West Ham United over the permanent signing of keeper Darren Randolph. Randolph has entered [the] final 6 months of his contract & will provide competition for Mark Travers & Neto.”

The Verdict: Best for both parties

Randolph has previously been dubbed ‘class’ by journalist Josh Bunting, but letting him leave this window would be completely the right decision.

The 35-year-old has made zero appearances across all competitions this season and has only been named on the bench eight times in the top flight (Transfermarkt).

David Moyes is happy with Lukasz Fabianski as his number one and it’s clear that the veteran doesn’t have any part to play in the boss’ long-term plans.

With Randolph in need of more game time and the Hammers being given the opportunity to free up some space on their books, this is a move that’s best for both parties.
