Hammers might miss out on Southend keeper

BENTLEY IN MADRIDWest Ham’s Goalkeeper target Daniel Bentley has revealed he is to be offered a new contract by Southend. The shot stopper made two stunning saves during a dramatic penalty shoot-out to help Phil Brown’s side secure a memorable victory in Saturday’s play off final against Wycombe Wanderers at Wembley.

The 21-year-old, whose current deal expires at the end of next season, is now set to be rewarded with a new contract in a bid to see off other admirers including West Ham.

“It is my understanding that I will be offered a new contract,” revealed Bentley to the Southend Echo.

“My agent and I will be sitting down with the club to talk about it all and I’m happy to do that.

“I know there has been a little bit of speculation about my future but I’m very happy with what we’ve achieved this year and I enjoy being a Southend player.

“I only ever focus on what happens on the pitch but right now I’m also making sure I enjoy this promotion we’ve just won as well”

  1. Why would we miss out on him like he is going to sign for 2 more years before he signs for us,he will have to find a new girlfriend because this one has been wetting her knickers for 2 years to be a premier team wag

  2. Yep if we come knocking he’ll be on his way and from what I’ve seen he might be worth that knock

  3. Be Careful What You Type… lol!
