Hammers 60 seconds man could be on his way

West Ham look likely to allow Alex Kral back to Spartak Moscow after the midfielder has been found himself unable to make any impact at the London Stadium so far this season.

Kral of course featured in some highly speculative and ill informed gossip in the summer when some insisted that a £25 million move to the London Stadium was certain.

CandH learned at the time this was most certainly not the case having been told there would only be some interest if anything happened to Declan or Tomas.

Thus it was mildly surprising when Moyes decided to loan the player but after featuring  in just 60 seconds of Preemier League action Spartak Moscow’s  sporting director tells MetaRatings. that he could return to Russia.

The Hammers organised a loan with a permanent deal option at around £12 milion but given his shortage of any real action one wonders why the boss agreed to such a move in the first place.

Now it looks likely that he could even be back in Russia before the current season  comes to an end.

  1. He should go, he isn’t as good as Conor Coventry so we may aswell send him back, lets be honest he couldn’t hold down a place in Russia so it was always a long shot, would like to see Hlozek given a chance though if we could get him from Slavia Prague, he still looks raw for the PL tbh but I suspect he might have it in him to raise his game.

  2. Surely DM and him team know about Kral now. If he is a prospect, for god’s sake sub him on, give him playing time. If not, then send him back. I do wish DM would be more proactive with his last ten minute subs – bring on the players needing development for ten minutes, not Arthur and Yarmo. They must be good enough for a few minutes, or else why are they there?

  3. Kral looks decent enough to me when I’ve seen him play. Unfortunate for him that he’s got Rice Souchek and Lanzini ahead of him in his position.
