Report: Hammers eye de Gea


West Ham are this morning (Thurs) being reported as getting ready to bring David de Gea back to the Premier League.

According to Football Transfers the former Manchester United goalkeeper’s representatives  have contacted the keeper’s representatives about the possibility of him signing an 18-month deal in January.

The Spaniard was released by by Manchester United in July but there have been no inquiries and he is currently ready to consider any options that may come his way. United made an offer but then withdrew leaving him facing life  as a free agent.

Football Transfers claims the Hammers are ready to offer him an 18 month deal  but frankly it is a tricky one to believe with Alpopnse Areola in outstanding form.

He was only made our No 1 keeper this season and it seems impossible that De Gea would be interested in becoming a No 2 should – as expected – Lukasz Fabianski move on at the end of the campaign.

    Can’t see this working! We have a very good number one keeper in Areola who has patiently served and now performs really well and is a valued member. Fab is number two now and not long term. Youngsters are in place. De Gea is no better than Areola but can’t see him settling for number two. So I don’t see competition but rather disruption and costly wages.
