Antonio vote of confidence

Michail Antonio’s future looks more and more likely to be at West Ham.

The former Hammer of the Year has shown good form in recent matches notably last weekend at Old Trafford when he brought a magnificent save from David De Gea and also hit the crossbar.

There have been regular rumours that Crystal Palace in particular hold an interest and are closely monitoring his position.

But a Hammers senior source told us on the ‘phone there have been no inquiries – let alone bids – for the  29 year old who has now been with the club for the past four years making 105 appearances for 24 goals.

Andriy Yarmolenko’s return from injury will presumably put Antonio under more pressure for a place but we were told: “He’s not a player we’d like to see leave.

Despite all the speculation there have been no bids or inquiries for Michail and he’s not a player we’d like to see leave the club .”

  1. Good to hear – Michael looks like he’s coming back into form and we need his strength and pace – let us hope he scores tomorrow COYI

  2. Good we should keep him. If he went anywhere it would be Palace for cheap & he would her 10 goals & help them do well.
    Antonio gets stick but he was injured mainly bc Bilic rushed him back bc he didn’t want to pkay Feghouli or Snodgrass & came back weeks early at Swansea & injury turned into survey & out for preseason then Moyes did the same bc small squad & no faith in yourh.
    Pellegrini doesn’t rush back players which is refreshing to see. And Ant might not be a technical player but he is still one of our top goal scorers had 9 when first moved before injured AC only match that once over 7 years. He is strong fast & he can cross when needed and set up goals & has a wicked header. If he could get a lil better finishing with is feet be great plus is versatility & isn’t in £100k like much our Injured squad
