C&H Exclusive: Bowen’s Going Nowhere

Image for C&H Exclusive: Bowen’s Going Nowhere

West Ham United have made an immediate response to rumours that Jarrod Bowen is at the top of Newcastle United’s transfer wanted list.

The media in the northeast have been growing increasingly confident that they will be able to buy Bowen this summer and moreover, they can do so at the price they want.

This incredibly confident claim came via the Northeast Echo, which suggested that Newcastle can make a strong case to the player and force through a transfer on their terms. The newspaper even went as far as to suggest that the Magpies could seek to use the lack of a relationship between Bowen and new head coach Julen Lopetegui as a reason the player may uproot and join the Toon.

When Claret & Hugh contacted a high-ranking West Ham source for comment, we were informed that Bowen would be staying put.

When asked about links to the Magpies, the club insider said, “We don’t need to sell the player. Bowen is staying.” When C&H followed up with a question about whether Bowen was part of Lopetegui’s plans, the response was clear, “Of course, the new manager wants him.”

I would like to think that the direct clarification from West Ham will put the story to bed, but I suspect not. This is a transfer rumour that will continue to run and run, but as far as I can tell, Bowen is happy; he’s on a long-term contract with no buyout clause, and the club have stated he’s not for sale.

    Exclusive: No decent player would want to join a northern s**te sportwashing club except for mercenary wages.
    Greed is good EPL.

  • John Ayris says:

    There is no factor that makes me think that Bowen even might go to Newcastle.

    He’s 27 on a seven year contract and he scored 20 goals last season makes him too expensive.

    He’s known to be happy.

    It’s a nonsense story.

    West Ham are obsessed with this story. North East not so much.
