‘Arry set to enter the Snodgrass race

Harry Redknapp Robert Snodgrass may be about to attract a third club as a serious battle develops for his signature.

Aston Villa are reportedly favourites to grab the Scottish international with Sunderland also in the frame but both of them may be hijacked by Harry Redknapp and Birmingham City.

Snodgrass has been exiled from the Hammers first team squad and is currently training with the under 23s ahead of a near certain move out of the London Stadium.

And a Redknapp move would be certain to upset deadly rivals Villa on the other side of the city but it’s beginning to look very possible after the former Hammers boss made his feelings clear on the player.

Speaking to ITV Racing he said: “”I think Snodgrass might leave West HamAston Villa and one or two are in for him, Sunderland.

“I’d like him as well at Birmingham. Good player.”

With three clubs the Irons look set to agree a more ptable wage sharing deal than the 50-50 thought to be on offer from Villa.

  1. Is Ravel still with the Brums?

  2. I think ‘arry is interested in taking him on loan from lazio.

  3. I’m not happy with this. We loan him out and we’ll be paying at least half of his wages. This means that we are wrtiting off his transfer fee. Bilic has been a fool with some players that he has chosen to buy.

    • You think Bilic wanted him.No i doubt it but we had to buy someone when payet left.There isnt many options in a january market so i dont blame him for this one.

  4. Actually gald Birmingham are in they have a splash of cash with new Chinese Investment group and Villa can’t buy bc FFP. But I am failry sure w loan they want most if no all wages covered.
    Birmingham can actually afford a bid unlike Sunderland and Villa. Imagine they would take half of what they paid Bilic doesn’t plan to.use him and was played in is unfavoured positionhere at LW he plays inverted.
    Not sure why we didn’t list home before now could have probably gotten more before clubs that want him spent most of their money.
    Eyeing Jota to replace him and he wants move here but Boro ate bidding for him again.
    So last week we need to make things happen like not let Carvalho be snatched by Chelsea

  5. Birmngham aint got a pot to **** in.Harry has to deal in loans because they have no money.He cant buy a centre back he wants until he shifts another out.Absolutely skint.

  6. And if these Barca links to Lanzini have any credibility I am very worried. Bc Barcelona is like Cat Nip to South Americans and For Lanzini to play with Messi at Club as well. Be hard to be mad at him of wanted to go. PSG won’t sell them Di Maria bc Neyamr lawsuit and tensions.And our wish of Liverpool not selling Coutinho hopefully didn’t get worse bc turning down Liverpool easy Barca not as much….


    Hope it is rubbish but popping up everywhere and w Dembele Holding up that still want 2 players plus and he is mid and LW. And Draxler and Di Maria won’t be an option
    Hopefully go after Eriksen and Insigne and finish Seri deal.

  7. Reading Villa deal is set to be done in 24 jrs Snodgrass and Bruce have had talks and they will cover all or most of his wages
