Hammers defender wants a winter move

The player has remarked in the past that he would like to return to Germany and is still keen on a return to his homeland in January after becoming something of a flop at the club having told the club he wants a transfer.

And the Hammers are ready to let the player leave on the right terms as he has not come up to the levels they had hoped for when he was signed from Paris St Germain on a four year deal with a two year option in August of last year.

It wasn’t long afterwards that the 27 year old made it clear publicly that he was hoping for a return to Germany at some point and it seems the time has now come for that to take place.

A backroom source made it clear to Claret and Hugh that the player had been a disappointment and that as a result he would be allowed to leave.

However, with over two years left on his deal the club will be looking for a minimum of the £10 million they paid for him.

Meanwhile, our main source has revealed that  Pablo Fornals will definitely be on his way back to Europe – in all probability Spain – but that the move is unlikely to happen until the summer unless the club receive a major offer next month,

It is also seems pretty well certain that Said Benrahma is also set for a move and according to some reports has been demanding the club allows him to leave.
