Although a club insider says West Ham were still trying to bring Leander Dendoncker this evening they admitted the player remains in Belgium and has yet to undergo any kind of medical.
Stories this morning suggested that Anderlecht had immediately rejected a bid for around 20 million euros but our source says negotiations have been carrying on all day. However, with the player still in Belgium and no medical scheduled time has effectively run out even if Anderlecht had a change of heart and accepted West Ham’s offer.
Anderlecht chief executive Herman van Holsbeeck previously said: “Dendoncker is the centrepiece of our defence. If we let him leave it has to be for a lot of money. We also have to find a replacement for him, even if it is a loan for six months.
“A deal can be done if the interested club puts 25 or 30million euros (£22m-26.5m) on the table for him. I’ve experienced plenty of difficult transfer windows, but this one is the trickiest of all.”
We all new any way before today, you don’t have to.be mystic meg to work it out, the transfer windows since leaving the Boleyn have been a disappointment every time. One or two decent signings but apart from that it’s been a farce.
What a joke we’ve become under the stewardship of these chancers.
Pathetic and out of their depth, please, please, sell up and leave🙏
Mary says it all for the fans. Get out of our club
Looking likely another disappointing window, it’s difficult now not to accept we have problems when it comes to signing the right players we need. Someone has to accept responsibility for failure, we are going downhill.
The guy said 25 mil euros would clinch it last week or so ?
So Sullivan offers in the region of 20 ? So anything slightly up to the 20 ?
Always trying to barter ! Nick a bit ? Do a deal ? It only works for donkeys and pensioners !!
I think there’s going to be some strong comments on sites if nothing else happens not including hugill bloke ? We need 2 minimum by tonight if not were going to struggle because of numbers ! A couple more injury’s and were done ?😟
Thats right Laz.Ayew gone now,Oxford back in Germany and Burke to Bolton for rest of season so just what is going on?.Surely something in the pipeline or are we witnessing some kind of meltdown?.Squad is down to the bare bones now literally.
Laz what ever happened to Carvahlo? More b.. s… ?
Be fair guys they only had one month to sort out the transfers and it’s taken to last day to get a great player everyone wanted from Preston. Moyes actually said he would rather not get anyone in if their not better than what we have. This deluded coach sacked by manure and took Sunderland down is certainly a lifesaver for our beloved board of total w—ers. Please f–k off and leave our club with your profits and take deluded ditherer moyes with you.
Pay the 25 Million. He is worth them. And he will be 10 million more expensive in the summer…
Actually, Anderlecht’s valuation hasn’t changed, unlike Sporting Portugal with the Carvalho saga. The problem is with these Souk Merchants who want to feel good by saving 2 millions and laughing about it. “What a deal I just made”. Or not…
We never intended to sign him, have the club gone back in for Carvalho, no. It’s a lie & there will be more in the summer when probably Lanzini & Arnie are sold & replaced by knowbody.
