West Ham have received some news around the future of midfielder Tomas Soucek as The Athletic are reporting that he is happy to stay for the rest of the Premier League season.
With the Premier League postponed in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, many were wondering what would happen to players whose loans and contracts were due to expire in June after the campaign was meant to end. However, there are discussions ongoing to allow footballers in this situation to stay for longer if needed, as the season is only getting back underway on June 17, per The Telegraph.
Would you like Soucek to stay at the club?
At his parent club Slavia Prague, the midfielder has a very impressive record as he has managed 40 goals and 14 assists in 148 appearances (which includes the Champions League), per Transfermarkt, and this quality has been shown in his brief spell so far at the Irons. The 25-year-old has already averaged the joint-second highest interceptions per game (two, via WhoScored) and the most clearances (three) of any central midfielder among David Moyes’ squad.
The only negative aspect of the update provided by The Athletic is that the Czech Republic international looks unlikely to stay if the Hammers are relegated.
However, for now the club should be happy that he wants to stay and be part of the team battling for their Premier League survival as they sit only two points from safety, via BBC Sport. His declaration of loyalty to the West Ham cause suggests that he has enjoyed his time at the club and should go down well with fans, staff and team-mates alike.
His stats show that he is a vital player for the team and hopefully he can help keep the east London side in England’s top flight and possibly even be signed permanently in the summer.
