According to a report by West Ham United insider Claret & Hugh, the club will now try to sell goalkeeper Darren Randolph before the end of this summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: West Ham exodus?
While incoming transfer activity has been relatively quiet for David Moyes and co, there have been plenty of exits from east London already this summer.
Fabian Balbuena and Oladapo Afolayan were the first to leave West Ham permanently, with the club then also selling Felipe Anderson back to Lazio.
Meanwhile, the likes of Nathan Trott and Nathan Holland have departed on 2021/2022 loan deals away from Rush Green.
The Latest: West Ham set to green light Randolph exit…
As per Claret & Hugh, West Ham have now deemed another player surplus-to-requirements in back up keeper Randolph.
The signing of Alphonse Areola from Paris-Saint Germain has pushed the 34-year-old further down manager Moyes’ pecking order and GSB will now try to sell him this summer.
However, despite their eagerness to green light his exit, the Hammers admit that it may be hard to find new suitors for the Republic of Ireland international before August’s transfer window deadline.
The Verdict: Time to go…
Randolph, amassing 50 international caps for his country, is contracted until 2023, so West Ham still have some time to find a suitor if nobody comes knocking before the end of this month.
However, with the addition of Areola, we agree that there is just no place for him in Moyes’ squad anymore.
