Hammer Mohammed Kudus will NOT be sold this summer insist West Ham. That’s the news from West Ham’s top source who informed Claret & Hugh’s Sean Whetstone this morning.

A £85m buyout clause for this summer expired at midnight on 1 July without being activated and will not be activated again next summer. This means that any club wishing to bid for the Ghanaian will not have their bid automatically accepted.

Any bids that come in subsequent in this transfer window will be rejected. It had first been thought that the released clause would not be activated until next summer, but the club were desperate not to alert other clubs that he was available for a short period of time this summer.

Sky Sports Germany’s transfer expert Florian Plettenberg revealed last week that the Kudus release clause was in fact active this season. Fortunately the leaked details didn’t result in a firm offer for the player who is believed to be happy to remain at West Ham.

      Hello again, Matt: Your fourth identity in four separate posts might make me wonder about believing in your identity. ‘Be careful what you read’ being your latest nom de plume, following on from ‘computer says no’ and a couple of others yesterday. At least we are brave enough to put our own names to the articles we write.
