Robert Snodgrass to meet West Ham ahead of proposed transfer from Hull

Author: . Published: at 9:22pm

Hull’s Robert Snodgrass will meet West Ham tomorrow (Friday) to discuss personal terms and have a medical, Sky sources understand.

Snodgrass has chosen West Ham over Burnley after both clubs had £10m bids accepted by Hull.

The Scotland international has also attracted interest from Middlesbrough, whose £10m offer was structured differently to Burnley’s improved offer.

Our own ExWHUEmployee think that the deal will be approximately £50k a week basic salary plus bonuses relating to performances.   The deal should be signed for three years.

Here is Hammers Chats preview of our new signing! Well worth a watch

    This player does not offer ten milion pounds worth of variation, invention or technical quality. We have more important areas to strengthen. In addition he will soon be thirty. We quibble over Hogan and pay way too much for an average squad player.

    Unfortunately, this is what tends to happen in the January window. We went in (Reportedly) with a derisory offer of £2 million and now have been forced to more than quadruple it under pressure .THe same thing happened with Ayew although that was at the seasons beginning, The proverbial cat is surely out of the bag on WHU transfer strategy which merely allows clubs to hold off awaiting the certainty of a better offer and brings others in..All covered by media hype.

    Another bizarre seemingly unnecessary signing – still we beat Burnley and Boro. Our transfer policy just looks shot at the moment. 9 months ago we were looking at Bacca, Lacazette and Batsushayi – OUTRIGHT STRIKERS and now we sign Snodgrass and possibly Hogan (who looks another one to add to the injury list). So we now have Antonio, Feghouli, Snodgrass and Ayew ALL seemingly attacking right sided midfielders and Byram and ‘Norveidt’ at right back and no natural left winger…priorities?
    Will this be another signing like Fonte where there is an underlying story?
    Is he the replacement for Ayew and is it true that one reason he was signed for a club record fee was because he’s a ‘great friend’ of Payet?
    And while I’m ranting..that Victor Moses fella we had under our noses all last season when we were looking for a right wing back and we let go because he wasn’t good enough/we could get better…he doesn’t look like he’s struggling playing in that role at top of the table Chelsea…still Arbeloa may come good…
