Hammers ready to move on player when safe

Saint Etiene’s Jonathan Bamba will wait on West Ham’s Premier League fate before committing himself to the east end!

The 21-year-old comes out of contract in the summer after being tracked by the Hammers this but admits his future remains in doubt.

With the club unwilling to meet his demands, a free transfer can be expected.

His manager, Jean-Louis Gasset, pleaded with the club that as St Etienne’s top scorer the club held onto him for the rest of the season. He has also recorded the the most assists.

The Hammers are very keen along with Palace and asked about his future the player said: “It’s still not sorted. I’m waiting and I hope that it will sort itself out soon”.

The Hammers are ready to make an offer to the player but until survival has been assured little progress can be made on the deal.

  1. Let’s see what happens within the next three or four games . Clubs around us need to lose or draw some games and we need to win them . It is not entirely in our hands , as so many people are fond of saying , players included . We need a good dose of luck apart from winning . We have had a fair slice of luck already with teams around us being beaten whilst we lose . If the owners would only spend to make us stronger in the Premiership instead of fighting for promotion things would be great . But it must be said , we are not a massive Club and Money is key . If we survive this season the expectations will be enormous for next season . Even more than people can imagine . It’s make or break time against Southampton . But Southampton will be thinking the same ….. WOW .

  2. For a free, Bamba looks like a no-brainer. He is 22 in a few days, but still young enough to make an attempt at the Premier league. He is a right footer but can play anywhere across the field as an attacking midfielder, where his dribbling and passing could open up defenses. He is not an old fashioned winger hugging the line to sling in crosses.
    OK he will still need to prove himself in the Premier league, but he has a very good chance of doing just that.

  3. no doubt we will be linked with all sorts of players now season ticket renewal date approaches.It was in the January window we needed players.But instead of buying they sold.

    • Talking of season ticket renewals, have you heard from the club yet Paul about your pitch incursion ?

    • Paul, I actually said you had the courage of your convictions am genuinely curious as to what you think in retrospect, personally as I have gone on record as saying whatever my thoughts on the chairmen in a position of a relegation battle I think getting behind the team is the best action but you and others obviously believe strongly otherwise and I am not saying one position is wrong or one right but having made a protest which was highly visible what in retrospect are your thoughts ?
