According to reliable club insider ExWHUemployee, GSB and the West Ham board could be looking to tie down Fabian Balbuena in the ‘next few weeks’ with his future ‘under discussion’ at this moment as the Paraguayan’s current deal expires at the end of the season.
Balbuena, who has proven to be a formidable presence for David Moyes and co, coming in for Issa Diop and shining as part of a back three, is now subject to discussion as the club contemplate tying him down with a new deal.
Should West Ham tie down Fabian Balbuena?
Balbuena up for contract discussions
Striker Michail Antonio recently put pen to paper on an extension with the club, keeping him at the London Stadium until 2023, and GSB certainly aren’t done there, according to the insider.
As well as Antonio, the likes of Balbuena, Mark Noble, Robert Snodgrass, Lukasz Fabianski and David Martin could be offered new deals as each of their contracts run out next year.
Indeed, writing on his exclusive Patreon, ExWHUemployee says Balbuena is at the centre of discussions over his future at the club – and he is a candidate to put pen to paper on a potential new deal in the ‘next few weeks’.
Transfer Tavern take
Given his towering presence for the Hammers and his contribution to their solid Premier League start, it’s little surprise to see that GSB are contemplating a bumper extension for the ‘outstanding‘ defender.
Only time will tell whether the club do announce this move imminently, but ExWHUemployee claims it could well happen as Moyes seeks to reinforce his options ahead of a long season.
