Hammers defender may get permanent move

Winston Reid may be on his way to a permanent deal with loan club Sporting Kansas City according to a report from MLS soccer.

Winston has been performing well with the American outfit whom he joined at the start of the year with his Hammers days now seemingly behind him.
He has not appeared in our colours since 2018 but at MLS level he has become something of a star for Kansas who now want to offer him a permanent home.
Currently Reid is having just 30 per cent of his wages paid by the Americans so a deal which sees him off the books would help with the Irons financial problems  given his contract at the London Stadium us due to run until 2023.

The 32-year-old joined us from  FC Midtjylland in the summer of 2010 for around £5 million and has been a fine servants despite regular injuries.

Hopefully he will get the chance to close his career playing regularly and should the move take place then a very small fee of around £1,5-£2 million can be expected.

  1. Great Guy wish him well. I Will always remember the goal at Upton Park; but also that last-minute win at the Olympic was so special vs Sunderland. Oh and Millwall too!

    • Likewise. He liked playing for us and rarely had a moan- unlike some. The only negative was his long term injury.

  2. 2023????

    What the actual

  3. Deserves his testimonial when fans are allowed back into the stadium.

    One of our best defenders of the last ten years and more

  4. Would prefer to see him back in Claret & Blue, even in a back up role.

    Getting any sort of fee for him seems a little optimistic at this stage…
    Wish him all the best whether that’s UK or USA

  5. Would he be happy in a back up roll. Training every day with very little prospect of playing? Would he be capable of playing at premier level a couple of times a week, given his frailties?
    Would he be able to hack it after over 2 years out and then playing at a vastly lower level?
    If the answer to these questions was yes, do you think the manager would have recently spent a couple of months trying, in vain, to sign a new centre back?
