Hammers keen to offload Samuelsen 

West Ham are keen to offload  Norwegian Hammer Martin Samuelsen who has one year of his contract remaining.

The 22-year-old is reported to have no long term future at the club under Manuel Pellegrini and the Hammers now want to cut their losses on his £8,000 per week in wages.

Last season he returned to his initial club in Norway Vard Haugesund but the club will look to either loan him out again to cover as much of the £416,000 in wages remaining or possibly agree to terminate his contract by mutual consent if he can find another club this summer.

Samuelson joined West Ham in 2015 on a free transfer from the Manchester City Academy but failed to make the step up to the first team despite a promising in the Under 23’s.

The youngster had spent time on loan with  VVV-Venlo, Peterborough United, Blackburn Rovers and Burton Albion in recent seasons.

  1. Another great talent just slips away, something has to be wrong with our development of players, he is not the first in recent years and will not be the last!

    • Something wrong with development? Rice, Diangana, Holland, etc?

      • To be fair, I don’t think you can point to Holland and Diangana until they are established frist teamers. Holland hasn’t played yet and Diangana still might not make the grade particularly with the added competition in the squad.

  2. He failed at city first so I think it is. Ore a player attitude thing than a West Ham development issue. We just got excited by his talent but now it appears attitude and desire are equally important for us. About time too

  3. Heartbreaking because that young man had more talent than any kid I’ve ever seen at West Ham
    Since I first watched them play in the 60s I honestly believe he hasn’t failed West Ham it’s West Ham that failed him
