Hammers and Coventry urged to start talking again

West Ham have been urged to hold onto Under 23 midfielder Conor Coventry.

Talks between the club and player’s agent have been deadlocked for several months and are unlikely to be resurrected until nearer the end of the season.

But former academy chief Terry Westley insists that the two sides should come together quickly and sort out the boy’s future.

He told CandH exclusively: “In situations like this it starts getting suggested that the player is being greedy and all the rest of it.

“But I know the boy well and he’s a very good player whom the club would do well to hang onto. Both he and his family are great people and he is no way being difficult.

“There’can  always a bit of a problem when they see others like Grady Diangana and Declan going right up the pay scale but I’m sure this can be worked out and would urge the two sides to come together and sort ths one out.”

  1. Heard he only wants paying £5000 a week, so give it to him. If you can pay Sanchez £50k for not playing to be sat on his Arse on the bench. In my opinion Coventry should be in the 1st team,

  2. I’ve been a Hammer all my life 66 years and I’m sad to say can we please have a young hungry management team like the Cowley brothers. Secondly can we bring all our young loaned out players back, tired of the over rated over paid spoilt so called superstars showing that they have no desire to play for the club. Also look how the under 23year olds are doing. Time for a change were the Hammers and should go on the field and play with pride which is obviously so evidently missing

  3. Then all the rest of the u23s will want parity. The club has a strict pay structure. All these lads know that. The club seems to have learned a lesson from the Oxford mistake.

  4. Can he play in goal ?
