Hugely complicated times ahead of West Ham


West Ham boss David Moyes and technical director Tim Steidten face a very complicated 12 months with 10 players coming out of contract.

Beyond that the board are already talking to Hammers hero Jarrod Bowen whose advisers are proving very difficult to satisfy as the club seek to extend his contract.

The club will also be attempting to come to agreements with Vladi Coufal – whom we have reported is also in talks, Ben Johnson, Pablo Fornals, Michail Antonio. Aaron Cresswell, possibly Lukasz Fabianski, Conor Coventry, Angelo Ogbonna, Joseph Anang, and of great significance – Divin Mubama.

It is going to be a very complicated few months with the club also looking to sign further players in the winter and next summer as talks either succeed or fail with those who are in negotiations with the club.

However, with the technical director in place it will certainly be less so than previously has been the case.
