CandH Exclusive by Hughie Southon
West Ham’s outstanding 19 year old striking prospect Sonny Perkins has 12 months left on his West Ham contract
The youngster has been linked with Leeds United and Aston Villa over recent days with his agent being unable to come to an agreement on wages with the Hammers.
Talks have been going on for some weeks and it was thought at one point the front man who has yet to make a start for the first team was in the last weeks of his contract when actually he has 12 months left on his current deal.
The club want to extend it and as is always the case when young players are close to permanent first team squad inclusion, and are near the end of their contracts, huge wages are expected by the agents.
A key source inside the London Stadium told CandH exclusively tonight (Thurs): “He’s with us for another year.
The agent wants silly money to extend his contract .for a player who has yet to play a first team game.”
