Ashby removes all Irons images from his Twitter profile


By Hughie Southon

West Ham’s outstanding young right back prospect Harrison Ashby appears to have made it clear he is on his way from the club.
Claret and Hugh was the first media outlet to reveal that he would leave the club when several months ago we reported our key London Stadium  insider as having told us so and disclosed that the 21 year old’s agent also represented Toon boss Eddie Howe.
The Magpies had shown an interest in the summer and we were told that there was little to no chance of the youngster remaining amid such keen interest,
Now Ashby has removed all West Ham related pictures from his Twitter profile heading.
The Hammers have just rejected a bid from Newcastle for Ashby, 21, according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth who has good contacts to the Hammers media departmentSheth claims that negotiations are ongoing between the two clubs, and states that West Ham are open to selling Ashby this month rather than risk losing him for nothing in the summer.

The Hammers youngster used to have a snap of himself in a West Ham shirt as his profile and Twitter heading pictures. He has now removed both of those per West Ham Zone.

The Hammers have already allowed plenty of young talent to move on but Ashby will be seen as the biggest prospect to leave the club in recent months – possibly years.

    Can’t blame him for moving on. Probably knows he won’t get a chance in the first team under Moyes.

    Yes Moyes hang your head in shame for a total waste of young talent due to your head in the sand approach. Saw two other young former U23’s on TV today – plenty of managers have the vision to include their academy players, but sadly not ours.

    This is so sad and disturbing. When I see this lad play, he has been good and both technically, physically and seems to have something special about him.
    Moyes is suffocating the academies pathway into the first team which is terrible.
    I must admit Gonzo’s/Hammer’s Chat video on this is spot on.

  • ibhammer says:

    Couldn’t believe Moyes’ recent interview when he said we have some exciting young players coming through. If he knows this, why doesn’t he give them a chance? Makes me think it was just a comment for the interview?
