West Ham United have reportedly released Scottish left back Stephen Hendre, although there has been nothing official to come from the club’s Twitter or website.
If the news that has been reported in several news outlets is true then I’d like to personally wish Stephen the best of luck in finding a new club.
Also looking to be on his way out the club is goalkeeper Raphael Spiegel who is apparently set to fly out for a medical with Royal Excel Mouscron. Excuse my lack of knowledge here but I’m presuming he’s not flying out to the London Excel Centre!
Any apparent interest The Hammers had in Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has now apparently ended.
The apparent interest West Ham United showed in Middlesbrough’s winger Adama Traore lately has been stepped up in recent days with reports saying that both clubs have agreed a price with bookmakers suspending bets for the former Barcelona player to join The Hammers. West Ham officials are to sit down with the player to discuss terms very soon.
From one Traore to another. Any interest Hammers once showed in bringing Bertrand Traore on loan to the club from Chelsea is over for the time being with the striker agreeing a season long loan with Lyon.
Birmingham City are apparently set to test the water with West Ham in the race to sign Henry Onyekuru. As I stated in Thursday’s transfer news, West Ham United a Premier League team will find it hard enough to push through a work permit for the Nigerian, I do not image Birmingham City stand as chance. Although the work permit is for the player, to my knowledge the football clubs normally send officials to sway the decision in the their favour as it benefits both player and club.
