Hammer could depart for Posh

Peterborough United are preparing a bid for West Ham midfielder Conor Coventry which could see him depart the Hammers for good this summer.

The Championship new boys want to sign the 21-year-old on a permanent deal with Hull City and several other unnamed Championship clubs.

The deep-lying midfielder who won West Ham United’s Dylan Tombides Award at the end of the 2017/18 season was thought to be on teh verge of a breakthrough to the first team this season but it appears that is no longer the case.

A Republic of Ireland U19 international, Coventry made his senior Hammers debut in the 8-0 EFL Cup third-round win over Macclesfield Town at London Stadium in September 2018 as a teenager.

The lifelong West Ham supporter born and raised in Waltham Forest, who has been at the Academy since he was ten years old.

West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold have connections to Peterborough United through their good friend Barry Fry who is Posh’s director of football.

  1. FFS!…

  2. Posh would like to make a pile on any players. Buy him now for peanuts and sell him next year for millions. You know it makes sense. It’s not going to happen.

  3. Madness the boy is a diamond in the rough. Wakey wakey Moyesy and COYI⚒⚒⚒

  4. He needs to play with and against men. If we aren’t going to play him, let him go on loan. Personally, think we should play him.

  5. Extremely disappointing if true .
    This kid has bundles of potential, has impressed in preseason .
    Was Noble ahead of him in terms of development at the same age !
    Loan him for a season if necessary, but please keep him .

  6. Occasionally there is a West Ham news item which shocks you, and this is definitely one of them. Coventry is arguably the best prospect in our Academy, so if Moyes is prepared to let him go when he is on the verge of breaking into the first team match day squad it would send a poor message out to our other youngsters. Personally I would play Coventry ahead of Mark Noble in almost any situation and feel that he needs to be given more opportunity to show his ability. If we let him go to another club it will come back to haunt us.

  7. Delighted to see that Coventry is in the starting XI in the friendly with Brentford today.

  8. Does Peterborough have any money? Do we need pocket change or a larger squad as we’re also playing in the Europa League this season?….. Source?
    So many questions…
