West Ham United insider and reliable source, ExWHUemployee has shared a new update for supporters as the club agrees a new contract in principle.
The Lowdown: Hammers eye internal deals…
Reports have backed that the Irons and manager David Moyes are considering plenty of new inside deals for some of their best players.
Indeed, ahead of entering the transfer market, West Ham apparently want to secure the future of some of Moyes’ star assets, including winger Jarrod Bowen and midfielder Tomas Soucek ‘in line for big upgrades’. (Claret and Hughes).
Meanwhile, stopper and number one prop Lukasz Fabianski has previously confirmed talks with the Irons over extending his deal which is due to expire at the end of June as things stand.
Although nothing has yet been announced about these new terms, the ExWHU employee has now shared a new update on Fabianski’s situation.
The latest: Agreement concluded, but not signed…
According to the insider, via West Ham Roadan agreement with the 37-year-old on new terms is ‘agreed’ but has yet to be signed.
The goalkeeper, ‘as of now’, has been given the green light to extend his stay but no ink has been put to paper – with Ex claiming ‘question marks’ over Moyes’ options could prompt the club to turn to Burnley star Nick Pope.
The verdict: get him signed…
While it’s currently unclear what’s delaying Fabianski’s actual signing, we believe securing the former Poland international should be a top priority ahead of this summer.
Before considering activating Alphonse Areola’s permanent deal clause or going on the summer market, it is simply imperative to secure Fabianski on new terms for one more year.
