Good evening everyone. Here is what has been in the news regarding the Hammers today:
Robert Snodgrass is ready to give is all for West Ham, if he is given a second chance at the club. (Evening Standard)
I really like Robert Snodgrass and the fact that he is a proper professional. He has been slated by the owners of our club, but he is still willing to crack on with his job. I find that absolutely brilliant. I would be very open to giving him another chance with us, because I actually think he is a good player.
Pablo Zabaleta says he cannot afford to ‘take a breather’ like he did at Manchester City. (Evening Standard)
Cheikhou Kouyate says his team-mates have helped him regain his confidence. (Official Website)
I am very pleased to see that Cheik is getting back to his old self. He has been very disappointing for the last 18 months, but we all know how good he can be when he is at it. I hope he keeps up his current form, because he has been brilliant as of late.
Joe Hart is ready to quit Premier League football and move abroad this summer. (The Sun)
Barcelona are ready to sell midfielder Andre Gomes this summer, and this has alerted West Ham. (talkSport)
Manuel Lanzini has revealed that he will be back in first team action ‘very soon’. (Official Website)
I cannot wait to have Manu back. As I have said before, a front four of Lanzini, Arnie, Mario and Chicharito is frightening to any opposition. I am excited to see them all in the same side.
West Ham have been offered the chance to sign Hamburg SV winger Nicolai Muller. (Sports Mole)
West Ham have released an official club statement regarding dialogue with supporters groups. (Official Website)
Joao Mario has revealed that he wants to stay at West Ham beyond the end of the season. (Calciomercato)
Joao Mario has been brilliant since joining, and he would definitely be my main priority for the summer. He is an excellent player, and he gives us something that we have been missing in midfield. He has the ability to turn a defence into an attack, and his vision for a pass is incredible. I would be very pleased to have him signed on a permanent basis.
