Hammers likely squad named


West Ham News from Hughie Southon

West Ham have so far failed to give details of the squad submission to the Premier League which they were due to receive yesterday afternoon (Wed).

The club may or may not have given 25 names to the League although the Lingard issue continues to skew the situation perhaps and it seems likely one place will be left open as a result.

Hopes squad will be named today

It would be hoped that the club’s publicity department will today (Thurs) use the official site to let us know who has and hasn’t been included.

This would be the squad we would expect to be named: Areola, Fabianski, Coufal, Aguerd, Zouma, Cresswell, Mavropanos, Emerson, Soucek, Ogbonna, Kehrer, Ward-Prowse, Fornals, Paqueta, Kudos, Alvarez, Antonio, Bowen, Cornet, Ings, Benrahma, Mubama, Johnson and Coventry,.

Should that turn out to be the case then a 25th place would be available and one can bet on the last spot going to Lingard who is now being regularly talked up by Moyes and indeed Kevin Nolan.
