Hammers knock back speculation on player sale

West Ham have received no offers at this stage for Robert Snodgrass despite rumours that Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock is interested in signing the midfielder.

At this stage the Scot will be on his way back to the London Stadium after a highly successful loan spell with defeated Championship play off finalists Aston Villa.

The Hammers had hoped they would be in a win/win situation by picking up a £1 million windfall via Villa landing in the Premier League and receiving a substantial bid for the player.

Instead they are now back to square one with Manuel Pellegrini having to decide on his future – presumably adter taking a look at him in pre-season.

There had been hopes that Warnock would move in with a bid for the newly promoted Wales club but London Stadium sources have revealed to CandH that is not the case.

We were told that there has been no bid or enquiry at this stage and that no decisions on anybody’s future would be made until the manager returned from Chile.

  1. Reading in the paper today that Villa are in serious danger of going into administration. After two seasons flirting with relegation it makes you think ‘This could have been us’.

    A lot of fans on here have called for new owners over the last few months. Villa have had two lots of foreign owners but are no nearer sorting themselves out. I have been a regular critic of our owners over the last couple of years, but I would still prefer that they ‘stay and change things’ rather than bail out. It seems to me the more I think about it that having a club well organised is just as important as how much cash is splashed on transfers & wages. I have not seen enough to convince me that our owners will make the root & branch reforms that are needed, but I remain hopeful that if they are willing to listen to Mr P & learn from him we might just progress. He has done ok at a range of clubs- some well run, some dysfunctional – so he should have some idea of what is needed.

    • Agreed it could have been us h64, lets see what next season brings, Avram Grant has been sticking the knife in according to the media, saying that the problem isn’t the club, the supporters or the managers but he can’t say more… I doubt the chairmen had much to do with his shocking performance although they should have sacked him 6 months earlier.
