Another Hammer all set to leave the club

Domingos Quina looks all set to leave the Irons with a couple of German clubs -Hoffenheim and Werder Bremen – reportedly interested in signing the teenager.

The 18 year old is impressing in the  European Under-19s Championships helping them beat Norway and then scoring a great  goal against Italy.

The Hammers have been unable to come to an agreement with the player and his advisers and may now be ready to cash in on the youngster.

The Mirror are reporting the story and adds: ‘Ajax are also watching developments while Manchester City  were keen before he went to West Ham and could revive theirs.’

Former West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has compared him to Luka Modric and said there is something wrong with English football if he does not make it.

Quina is regarded as one of his country’s best prospects but his bright future looks set to lie away from West Ham.

  1. Something wrong with english football at the highest level of the game, Bilic is right. It’s all about instant success now. Top managers can still get the sack after 6months in the job nowadays. There’s no loyalty to the manager if there isn’t instant success. Infact, there’s no loyalty to managers who are successful even sometimes. When top level managers can go out and spend hundreds of millions on proven players it’s a no brainer as far as they are concerned. They haven’t got the time in the job to nurture youngsters through the ranks. I sometimes think the only way to make it now as a young english player at a premier league club is to drop down a level to the championship, or maybe go and play somewhere abroad like the Bundesliga where the youngsters are still given a chance. I don’t know if anyone noticed but Rice was never one of the youngsters that was really talked about much before Bilic propelled him into the first team. That is a rare exception to see a youngster breaking through these days. I know some people believe rice reminded Bilic of himself when he was younger. It probably didn’t hurt if that is the case. Let’s hope he still gets to play this season but I wouldn’t be surprised if he spent most of his time on the bench or was even loaned out to another club somewhere.

  2. I don’t think it is English football that is the problem, I watched him several times playing with the seniors in Europa League, friendlies etc and he didn’t show anything in those games and no improvement, I haven’t watched him play regularly in the u23’s so can’t comment on his form there but he would probably blossom quicker in a less physical league, should maybe try Holland, Belgium, Germany or Portugal to make his mark.
