Hammer missing training


Hammer Aaron Cresswell is not training with the first team at the moment.

His future remains in the balance as talks continue with Wolves over a permanent mpve which will worth up to £5m to the Hammers.

Although the deal has yet to agreed it is assumed that his head is not in the right space and he was absent from yesterday’s double training session at Rush Green.

The Athletic reports that Wolves are pushing to get a deal done as they face ‘difficult financial gymnastics’ to get avoid Financial Fair Play penalties.

The Hammers are believed to want £5m while Wolves originally offered £2.5m.

The 33-year old has been a great servant to West Ham making 330 appearances since joining from Ipswich Town for £3.75million in 2014.

Cressy has thought to have been offered a two year contract  at Wolves on better financial terms than the £53,000 per week he is reported to earn at West Ham.

He signed a 12 month extension with the Hammers last November taking his contract to June 2024.

    Do the right thing for the player, 2.5m is acceptable after all these years service. Why would anyone spoil all that sevice the sake of a few million !!!

    Hold out for the 5million. WH managed to balance their books- not our fault
    Wolves have a problem. They already got a player we wanted to/ couldn’t keep on the cheap.
    2.5 million might be the difference in getting a player and not.
