German striker loan reports could have legs

SchReports that West Ham has offered a loan deal to German striker André Schürrle could have legs claim German newspaper BILD.

Schürrle’s advisor Ingo Haspel had hinted that his client is considering a winter change.

“Basically, André wants to play as much as possible. And if the playing time is not guaranteed, then it would be downright negligent not to think about what the future might look like and where to get more playing time, “explained Haspel in an interview with Sky.

Only if Schürrle plays regularly again does he have a chance to join the World Cup squad in Russia under national coach Jogi Löw. At Borussia Dortmund, he has managed just a miserable 339 competitive minutes this season partly because he was injured frequently.

Borussia Dortmund does not want to sell their 27-year-old striker but might consider a six-month loan with the Hammers looking to fit a gap with Sakho likely to leave in the transfer window.

  1. Loan here Loan there let’s Loan from every or any where ????

  2. A loan to help Schurrle get match time, to get fit, might not harm us and could play out well. We are in the poo. So some desperate, risky market trading – loans from ‘here there and bleedin’ well everywhere’ to cite Dusty – becomes an ugly necessity.

    What is so worrying about entering this transfer window is the absence of communication from the leadership of our Club of a hopeful, intelligent strategic business plan designed to bring together a viable quality squad of players. All we get is speculation reinforcing the impression of a Club addicted to knee-jerk short termist transfers driven by crisis, coaching chaos, fear and desperation and no evidence of an aspirational and coherent strategic transfer policy.

  3. Thought we wanted them to stay shtum.

    • We only want David Sullivan and his stupid sons to stay shtum.
      Perhaps we could do a deal where we get Schurrle on loan in exchange for the Sullivan sons.

      • Sums up the quandary that exists. People want them to shut up at the same time as knowing in detail whats going on and overreacting to every little snippet of gossip.

  4. No Max we want them all to stay shtum.
