West Ham are continuing to hold talks with Vladimir Coufal’s representatives over a new contract with the club, according to Sky Sports’ Dharmesh Sheth.
But the reporter has revealed that Coufal’s representatives are disappointed with what’s being offered by the Hammers, with his current deal expected to expire in the summer of 2023.
Coufal signed for West Ham back in 2020, and has gone on to make 36 appearances in total for the London-based side, catching the eye with some strong performances in the 2020/21 season and chipping with seven assists in his first season in English football.
West Ham boss David Moyes labelled Coufal as ‘brilliant’ for his performance against Leicester City during the 2020/21 season.
The full-back is currently on international duty with Czech Republic, who are set to take on Denmark for a place in the semi-finals of the European Championships.
Moyes’ side finished sixth in the Premier League table last term, and will be hoping they can go from strength to strength heading into new campaign, which is set to get underway in August, but the uncertainty around key players like Coufal and Declan Rice will not help.
Plenty of West Ham supporters took to social media to voice their frustrations on this update on the club’s efforts to tie Coufal down to a new contract.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below, where one supporter labelled the owners as ‘disgraceful’…
“Does this club ever learn? The people who run us are a joke.”
“Lord help me.”
“Why am I not surprised.”
“That is insane. They should try everything to keep him.”
“First Rice and now Coufal just pay them what they want.”
“Hope people stop blaming Moyes for lack of transfers now, need to remember the disgraceful owners we have are the problem.”
