According to a West Ham United source, speaking to Football Insider, GSB and the club are stepping up their plans to tie down midfield star Tomas Soucek after an impressive campaign – with the Hammers ‘set‘ to offer him a new and improved deal which includes a ‘significant‘ salary increase.
Soucek, who has started every single Premier League game under manager David Moyes since signing permanently from Slavia Prague last summer, is apparently garnering more and more interest due to his performances.
West Ham plan new Soucek deal
Indeed, the Czech Republic colossus has a ‘growing army of admirers‘ as per this report, with GSB and West Ham allegedly now stepping up their plan to offer Soucek a bumper new deal.
His current contract entitles him to around £40,000-£50,000-per-week, but the mooted fresh proposal will increase this take home significantly.
As this exciting claim emerges that West Ham are plotting a new deal for Soucek, who has debatably been their player of the season, Irons supporters will surely be encouraged by their club’s efforts to keep hold of him.
Transfer Tavern take
Despite his role as a defensive midfield player, the 26-year-old has topped the Hammers scoring charts above the likes of Michail Antonio – all while proving to be one of the most aerially dominant men in the Premier League.
According to WhoScored, Soucek has averaged an impressive 5.7 aerial duels won per 90 – the second best number in England’s top flight just behind Sheffield United striker Oliver McBurnie.
A fan favourite at the London Stadium, in good company with the likes of Antonio and Declan Rice, time will tell if this proposed new deal comes to fruition – but it’s certainly a promising claim.
