Defender unlikely to make Irons switch

RudigerStuttgart defender Antonio Rudiger has confirmed ClaretandHugh’s story from two weeks ago that he is unlikely to be making a move to Upton Park.

Sam Allardyce had wanted another central defender at the club despite having four who are fully capable of playing in the position.

And we had been told that a second left back and right back were seen as bigger priorities by the board.

And with the club revealing they have “several balls in the air” at left back whilst in talks witjh Arsenal’s Carl Jenkinson over a loan move Rudiger looks seriously unlikely

And today the said: “It’s fine to find out other clubs are interested in me. But my full focus is on Stuttgart,” he told Sport-BILDweekly.

“I am under contract until June 2017 with the club and I do not force a move at this point in time. Of course, you never know in football. Still I am just focussed on my job and the new season.

“I have the best conditions to work at VfB Stuttgart, this will help me progress further. One day I want to come out for a big club in the Champions League. Anyway, this is still a long way off!”
