West Ham have signed Kara Mbodj from Genk, according to The Sun.
The tabloid claim the Hammers paid £4 million to the Belgian club for the services of the 25-year-old, who can play as a defender, defensive midfielder and central midfielder.
West Ham tried to sign the Senegal international in the January transfer window but failed, we reported then that the Irons would try again in the summer. https://www.claretandhugh.info/kara-mbodj-still-a-target/
Until recently Genk was managed by Alex McLeish, who David Sullivan and David Gold used to employ at Birmingham City.
If the news is true, Mbodj will become West Ham’s second signing of the summer following the acquisition of goalkeeper Darren Randolph on a free transfer from Birmingham City.
However, with the club manager-less at the moment, it remains to be seen whether our red top friends have got this one right.
