Ex tips Hammer for January exit


Aaron Cresswell looks to have played his last Premier League game for the Hammers and according to ExWHUemployee could be on his way out in January.

It would see the last of Sam Allardyce’s signings gone and the entirely new era under David Moyes reign virtually starting  if he is right.

According the our source Cress is now all but recovered from a minor hamstring problem from which of course it has taken longer at 33.

Unless the manager chooses to use him in Europe or the Carabao Cup clash game against Arsenal – which looks very unlikely  – we could well have seen our last game from him, the previous one being against Backa Topola in September.

It was surprising in fact to see him still at the club after rumours that he was on his way to Wolves in the summer but the midlands  outfit were not prepared to pay anything like enough to prise him away.

And whilst he could remain beyond January, Ex doesn’t think so having written about the the situation on his Patreon account.

He said:”The excellent form of Emerson and an injury to Cresswell has seen his first team options limited, and it now appears an exit could well materialise.

And he names Chelsea defender Ian Maatsen FC Porto left back Zaidu Sanusi could be in the frame as possible replacements.

He added: “Cresswell faces an uncertain future, with the player close to leaving in the summer.

The club have been impressed by Porto left back Sansusi, and should Cresswell leave then a bid could be made for the Nigerian international.”
