Hammers accept Randy bid

RandyAccording to reports, West Ham goalkeeper Darren Randolph is poised to join Middlesbrough after they agreed on a £5m fee for his signature it is claimed this afternoon.

Sports journalist Pete O’Rourke who broke the news says the player will now undergo a medical before the transfer is completed.

A report yesterday suggested West Ham rejected £3.5m bids from both Middlesbrough and Sunderland for Randolph services.

West Ham will not stand in Randolph’s way after the arrival England international Joe Hart on a season long loan.

The 30-year-old made 22 appearances last season when he got his chance after a drop in form by Adrian, he has later replaced himself when he experienced a bad run of games and Adrian retook the Goal keepers jersey for the remainder of the season.

  1. Really £5M? That’s way too much. What’s going on? I thought we paid too much but accepted too little? This will give us a good name.

    • Haha, this is great.

      • Forgot to put this, however, a loanee likely to be leaving and what seems third choice goalkeeper leaving prematurely would leave us with one keeper at the end of the season. Adrian may think to leave too, what do we do then…

        • Buy another then? Stop worrying, I’d be delighted to go this season with Hart Adrian and Trott. Happy days.

  2. Good,i hope this sees San Miguel stay.I was hopeful he would go as i think Adrian will stay now.
    Not bad free signing sold for 5m if this is true 😀

  3. Never felt confident with him between the sticks and is telling he’s had to drop down a division to get game time.

  4. Well happy if he goes 🙂 5 mill is stealing money 🙂 it was a kick in the nutts not a groin prob lem .

  5. Good luck Randy if you choose to go !!!

  6. Good luck to him think he will do well for Boro and £5m more than we payed. I echo others sentiments and agree with John seeing Hart and Adrian and Trott would be great.
    If the do let Adrian go a Loan would be proper but think he could very well stay and fight for his place and they would be daft to let him go with only a GK on loan at the Moment and Trott who I admire but don’t know if ready for premier league
