Bowen in January move claim


Haphazard rumours have started on some sites that the Hammers may be forced to sell Jarrod Bowen in January!

The basis of the suggestion is because he is one of those in the running for a Player of the Month award – thus we are looking at a bizarre piece of speculation

However West ham Zone suggest quite rightly that the bigger clubs are looking at a couple of our players quite strongly as we build a very good squad.

As they point out Lucas Paqueta was wanted by Man City before the betting probe started and of course Declan disappeared to Arsenal.

We have revealed too that the club are currently negotiating hard for Bowen to sign an extension to his deal but that his agents are proving tough operators.

But as the club builds a team which can really be going places this season we would expect Bowen to eventually sign and a one off award is hardly likely to change that.
