Dendoncker transfer update

DendockerBelgium news outlet HLN says West Ham has finally submitted a formal bid this morning to Anderlecht for Leander Dendoncker.

The report says the Hammers are not confident in landing Tom Cairney from Fulham and have decided to make their move on transfer deadline day.

It claims Anderlecht have already rejected the undisclosed bid claiming they want to keep Dendoncker.

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.”

  1. “How much are your penny chews shop keeper” “They are penny Sir”
    “A penny for penny chews I am not paying a penny for penny chews”

  2. Sullivan playing the old “We bid for players but they wanted to much for them but we tried I was working 24/7 to get some in but it would have been to late for the medical anyway.
    Blaa Blaa Blaa.

  3. Just read on KUMB that our initial offer was £10mill.
    Don’t know if it’s true or not, but if so why can’t our beloved (to some) leader just stump up the cash for once, rather than make derisory offers nowhere near the selling clubs valuation?
    Anyone would think Sully’s hoping for a knock-back, followed by a ‘we tried but just couldn’t get the deal over the line/too late for a medical’ BS!

  4. Only 9 hours left 😂 loads of time left 😂 I’m surprised he made the bid when he could have waited until the 11 the hour when he usually makes a derogatory bid which upsets the seller into playing hard ball ! 😎 pay the money its panic time 😤 ayews cash take up a bulk of it so sell him and buy him !!!

  5. You could not make this up,its laughable.A class player for years to come small amount left to pay once Ayew deal is done and another plus is i can not imagine his wages would be anywhere near what we pay Ayew a month.Then sign a striker and job is done.Good God we were all saying this a month ago and these clowns are still thrashing around looking for loans or offering peanuts.Record amount spent in a January window and these 2 havent spent a bean.Rank amateurs.

  6. Hmm! They want £22 to £26.5 million and if we sell Ayew for £18 million means in reality they’re getting Dendonker for £2-4 million? Last time I did maths 26.5 million minus 18 million left 8.5 million, even 22million leaves 4 million to find, not saying we shouldn’t spend the money, even if we don’t sell Ayew, but at least get your maths right if you are putting the board down

  7. Barrow boy mentality? “If we could sell bad apples for a profit? Why would we want to buy new ones? That’s the chairpersons mentality??? They’ve got to go? Otherwise I can see they will lose most (me included ) of there season ticket holders . But do they care? NO they’ell just get there Sky money, even if we do go down- they get parachute payments, the only thing they might lose is Us the fans do they care ? I don’t think so do you ?

  8. That’s exactly how they did make their millions . Can anyone think of an easier way to make money than peddle porn … thought not . They are low life and are dragging our club into the gutter where they operate .

  9. Did u say u hope we get relegated?

    • In a stupiud way Hugh yes.. obviously don’t mean it but I just want sullivan and co to suffer like us fans are and to be quite honest its a distinct possibility with the way they are going about there business..we sell ayew for 18 mil and we buy a Preston forward for 9 mil is that the next level ..they are a joke

  10. The majority of you know how to debate and good on you. However, I need to be consistent and am now applying the same rules here as on the FB Group – swear once and it’s a yellow – twice it’s a red. All comments using such language will be binned
