Bizarre claim for Irons midfielder

An extraordinary claim that Edmilson Fernandes has been offered to Besiktas has this morning emerged in the Turkish press – not the most reliable world media mind you.

According to Fotomac enigmatic midfielder Fernandes is being touted to the club by his cousin Manuel who formerly played for the club and Everton.

It’s a tough one to swallow although the Swiss midfielder has hardy torn up trees at the club having suffered a bad injury this season followed by one good game against Saints and a poor showing versus Chelsea.

But the report claims his cousin said:’ “Edimilson is a brilliant player. He’s suffering at West Ham. He’s only 21-years old. He could be a real star for Besiktas.’

Fernandes, who plays for the Switzerland national team, signed for West Ham from Sion at the start of the 2016/17 season. In his first season, the midfielder showed some promise and played 28 games for Slaven Bilic’s side in the Premier League.

The Hammers midfielder is contracted to the club until 2020

  1. If we beat Stoke then we will be safe and the silly season can begin

    If we draw with Stoke then we will probably be safe and the silly season can begin

    If we lose to Stoke then it will become incredibly tense and we don’t need to read such rumours

  2. I have always liked Fernandes and still think he will become the player I think he is.
    He had a decent first season, but this season he has struggled and got a bad injury. I hope he is given the time to get up to speed after a very long lay-off. Against Southampton he showed what he could become, and with the coaches now at the club, he has every chance of being big in the Premier league.
