Hammers reveal Zaza Juve return options

zaza2West Ham have no way of sending Simone Zaza back to Juventus before the turn of the year.

It’s not only West Ham fans who have become totally dejected with the Italian’s start at the club and want him sent back  to his club.

The Hammers staff are unhappy with the player too after striking a deal which is believed to involve him becoming a permanent £23 million signing should he make 16 appearances although the exact figure has never been announced!

However, we were told this evening (Wed) that early Cup games such as the one against Accrington Stanley in which he appeared are not included.

The Italian media has reported that West Ham are looking for an early exit strategy because although they would still  need to pay the €5m for the loan, they are eager to cut him off before reaching the limit of appearances.

However, that is wide of the mark and our source at the club made it clear there could be no retun until the next transfer window.

He told us: “January would be the earliest possible under rules. He’s played three games so far but the way he’s performing there is NO WAY he could reach the games limit to which we have agreed.”

  1. Luckily we only have 15 games before Jan 3rd anyway (excluding EFL game(s)), so should dodge this bullet easily even with our injury problems, please God!
    I wonder if we can sue Juve. under the trade descriptions act, ordered a striker but had a lemon delivered.

  2. He is definatley a lemon as it stands.Im not even sure he wants to improve his performances.
    I thought he was showing some early promise against Southampton but that soon faded
    If we do send him back in January does that mean Gold & Sullivan have to reassess the amount we spent this summer.I mean they did crazily manage to lump his possible signing on to this summers transfer outlay didnt they?

    • I think you may be thinking of Lanzini Tone.
      Martinez, Masuaku, Lanzini and Ayew cost about £38mil combined, so a nett spend of approx. £28mil with the Tompkins sale taken into account. I seem to remember reading somewhere that we spent about £43mil over the summer so would assume that the remaining £15mil are the cost of the loans for Tore, Ferghouli, Callerri and Zaza.

  3. Lol… Zaza is fuc#ing up my country, I swear I’m not related to him… 😀

  4. Oh dear just made the mistake of starting to read Jack Sparrow 86 on whtid. As soon as i finish my tea, i’m going to my shed to find some rope. (note ,i only said “started to read”.that’s already tipped me over the edge. I beg all Hammers fans “please don’t read this gloomy ****s view on our beloved club.In my view the man is a **** . Please insert your own word. COYI X

    • ……and another comment about the other site.

      • Do you actually have anything more to offer on here other than making remarks about talking about other sites fobyac.I mean is the irony lost on you that you only seem to want to comment on here about what is said about other sites but give nothing to the actual conversation on the article?!

        • Its floppysacs party trick Tone.Those cheeky little one liners.He is a real card is floppy.The Nomad is his nickname because no site wants to keep him for longer than a couple of comments before he p#sses them off 😉

          • But the only topic of conversation seems to be the other site.
            I mean it’s not like he even had the balls to comment on that site……he came running back here to tell tales……..it’s like being back in the ****ing playground on here at times lol

    • I’ve sinned, I read it (only partially), I was falling asleep… I gave up when he started talking about stats, it was just all too much… haha 😉

  5. He has been poor so far, I want to see how he is when the real West Ham show up for a match, the PL is so far detached from Serie A I would like to see him given some time, preferably as a sub and always with at least another striker on the field. I am not writing him off yet but Callieri looks more dangerous as does Fletcher and the only striker we have that’s scoring is Martinez when will he get a start ?

    • Im sure that Martinez has some attributes to admire but giving him a go at the moment is a little like saying give Elliot Lee a go in the past because he was scoring for the dev squad.It is a big step up isnt it 😉

      • Yeah completely Tone the argument is valid and there are question marks that date back to him in Spain that suggest he doesn’t defend from the front but the way he moves and gets into goal scoring positions, maybe it’s time for Slav to take a gamble, occasionally these things work out, most times they don’t but as he is scoring on average a goal a game he should have that naive confidence that even if it stands for a game or two might be the spark that lights us up again Let’s hope whatever happens we get our form back soon COYI!!!

  6. I would like to know who made the decision on bringing him in. If it was Bilic then I question his eye for a player. There isn’t one player we’ve brought in who is up to the job.
    I can’t judge Ayew after 34 minutes.

    • Well considering it was him who wanted Payet & Lanzini when most had never heard of them i dont think you can doubt his eye for a player.He wanted Lanzini at Besiktas.Most didnt have a clue who he was when playing out in the desert 😉

  7. I agree Zaza has looked poor to date. But the service he has received has been equally poor. Maybe if we could work him a few more openings and he managed to tuck one away then he might just click and get on a roll? Let’s not give up just yet hey.

  8. We brought him in because we were desperate and nobody else of that ‘calibre’ would come at the time. He doesn’t want to be here, and is playing his way out of a deal. I don’t blame him, given our start, for which he is in only a small part responsible. Calleri is struggling to adapt, but he looks keener to do so, therefore it surely makes sense to persevere with him and tell Zaza he is not that big a player for us that he can’t rot in the reserves if he’s going to be a petulant child.

    It would be interesting to see whether he upped his game if the rest of the team was doing well. Looking forward to Carroll and Cressie being back.
