The Lowdown: Big boost for Moyes…
As per reliable reporter Roshane Thomas of The Athletic, manager David Moyes has just been handed a major West Ham boost.
Indeed, according to his information, defender and fan favourite Vladimir Coufal has put pen to paper on a new three-year deal at the London Stadium.
The 29-year-old, who had been in new deal talks for a good portion of the year according to Sky Sports, has apparently committed his future to West Ham as GSB tie down one of last season’s star players.
Speaking to FI, Campbell has now made a claim on this news out of Rush Green.
The Latest: Campbell makes claim…
The Sky pundit, commenting on this major development, believes there was ‘talk’ of Coufal leaving West Ham if the club couldn’t agree terms on a new deal – meaning this update comes as a ‘great news’.
“Coufal has been a revelation,” he explained.
“There was talk about him maybe leaving so it’s great news for the club to get him tied down. Any team worth their salt gets their best players on long-term contracts.
“I am pleased that West Ham have got him tied up.
“He is a very good right-back and a solid defender. There are not many better than him in the Premier League.”
The Verdict: Big…
Coufal finished 2020/2021 as West Ham’s joint-highest tackler per 90 in the Premier League and, arguably, one of the division’s supreme full-backs.
Both him and compatriot Tomas Soucek have flourished since signing for West Ham in the summer of 2020 and Irons supporters will certainly be overjoyed that the defender has now put pen to paper.
