The mood around West Ham has improved a lot as recent results have seen them move six points away from the relegation zone ahead of the last week of the Premier League season.
Recent news has made the mood even better as ExWHUemployee has reported that current loanee Tomas Soucek has finalised a deal to stay permanently at the Hammers and it will be officially announced when it is confirmed that the Irons are safe from the drop.
Soucek came from Slavia Prague in January after scoring 8 goals in 17 league appearances and two goals in 6 Champions League appearances this season, per Transfermarkt, and he is valued at £10.80 million on the site.
Would Soucek signing permanently be good news?
Many West Ham fans are excited over the deal and it is easy to see why as the Czech Republic midfielder has performed very well for the club. He has picked up three goals, and managed on average 2.1 tackles, 1.8 interceptions and 1.8 shots per game, via WhoScored.
The quality to help out in defence but also provide an attacking threat has been crucial in helping the club move away from the drop and he will be a great addition to the squad.
Here is what fans had to say following the news, with one labelling his likely signing as a ‘bargain’:
Excellent news! Knew nothing about this fella when we signed him but absolute love him now.

What a bargain in today’s money too!

Fantastic acquisition! Wait until he gets in front of fans and they show him how they love him. He and Bowen have been standouts.

Great signing, he has adapted to the Premier league so quickly and hit the ground running. Gives us so much more strength in midfield. ⚒️
