According to a report by West Ham United insider Claret & Hugh, defender Vladimir Coufal is ‘set to receive a major wage hike’ with talks continuing over a new deal.
The Lowdown: West Ham eye new Coufal contract…
Sky Sports back West Ham’s desire to tie down the Czech Republic star with new and improved terms in east London, but they also claim there has been frustration in the process.
This comes after his phenomenal debut season at the London Stadium, where he shined alongside compatriot Tomas Soucek – with both men quickly becoming Hammers fan favourites.
Indeed, they even made the joint-most tackles for West Ham per game in the Premier League last season (2.1, WhoScored).
The Latest: Coufal set for bumper wage increase…
As per C&H, receiving information from their inside sources, negotiations are ongoing over a new deal for Coufal and it is believed that the player is set for a major salary boost.
Indeed, Coufal is apparently in line for a bumper new contract despite some fears within the club that Kurt Zouma’s wages could cause a degree of unrest.
This apparently couldn’t be further from the truth and the Czech international is set for a big salary offer.
The Verdict: Get it done…
We believe tying down Coufal should certainly be at the forefront of West Ham’s agenda considering his brilliant performances last season and praise from club legends.
Mark Noble is one Hammers icon who certainly rates the international, explaining how he has been ‘unbelievable’ since arriving at the club (That Peter Crouch Podcast via football.london).
Noble branded Coufal a ‘machine’ in particular (That Peter Crouch Podcast via football.london).
It is arguably imperative that West Ham keep him at the club for as long as possible based on his performances.
