West Ham United: Fans react as David Moyes loses interest in Rico Henry due to his height

West Ham United: Fans react as David Moyes loses interest in Rico Henry due to his height - West Ham Transfer Rumours

Throughout the transfer window, West Ham United have been linked with a move for Championship full-back Rico Henry. However, David Moyes seems to have lost interest in the player for a surprising reason, much to the frustration of many Irons fans.

According to @ExWHUemployee, and as tweeted by @whufc_news, the Hammers manager believes the Brentford left-back is too small and hence is unlikely to make an offer for the player.

Should West Ham sign Rico Henry?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The 23 year-old, who is valued at just £1.8m by Transfermarkt, is 1.7 metres tall, and what makes Moyes’ point of view even more surprising is that Irons left-back Aaron Cresswell is the same height. The left-back, who is now playing at centre-back for Moyes, per Transfermarkt, has played in 35 out of the last 42 Premier League games for West Ham.

Therefore the reasoning behind losing interest in Henry, which comes from a trusted West Ham source, seems illogical. The Bees defender performed well in the Championship last season at both ends of the pitch, with an average of 1.6 successful tackles and 1.9 clearances per game, via WhoScored, whilst also supplying two assists.

Some Irons fans were unsurprisingly displeased with Moyes’ “ridiculous” reasoning for apparently turning down Henry, with one supporter feeling that he is “not the best of judges” on a player.
