West Ham: Insider shares interesting Harrison Ashby update -West Ham Transfer Rumours

West Ham United insider Claret & Hugh has shared an interesting update on the future of exciting defender Harrison Ashby.

The Lowdown: Ashby a wanted man…

Over the course of deadline day, it was reported that Premier League clubs like Newcastle United held a serious interest in poaching the Irons starlet.

Indeed, Ashby apparently attracted the attention of the Magpies, who were attempting to prise away the West Ham talent in the final stretch of the summer transfer window.

That move didn’t come to fruition, with the defender instead remaining in east London.

The Latest: West Ham ready to offer Ashby new deal…

According to Claret & Hugh, there has been an update on the situation, with West Ham owners GSBK (Gold, Sullivan, Brady and Kretinsky) ready to offer Ashby a new deal.

However, there’s some ‘bad news’, with sources from within the club believing there is ‘little chance’ that he puts pen to paper, and Ashby could well move to St. James’ Park upon the expiry of his current contract in 2023.

The Verdict: Blow for Moyes…

Hailed as a ‘top player’ already by West Ham’s under-23 head coach Mark Robson, it appears that the club could be resigned to losing a real talent in the making.

Full-back options like Vladimir Coufal are entering the twilight phase of their careers, with exciting right-back Ben Johnson needing an alternative for when he is unavailable.

Ashby could well have fitted this mould, but given that the 20-year-old seems likely to leave east London, Moyes and co may need to assess their full-back options in January.
