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.
