Hammers stalwart faces uncertain future

Reid – no longer an untouchable at the LS

Winston Reid’s West Ham future looks uncertain after he again found himself on the bench at Liverpool yesterday.

Despite having returned from injury , the former Hammers near ever present when fit has been unable to force his way into the team.

He has suffered two spells of injury this season which has ruled him out of action for 46 days.

With James Collins probably unlikely to earn a new deal at the club it appears that manager David Moyes is preparing to dip strongly into the transfer market for at least one and possibly two top defenders.

They and a midfielder will be the priority once he signs an expected new deal with the club.

Reid has now been missing from the team since January 7, first with injury and now because Moyes has other preferences and he is unlikely to remain settled in such circumstances given he has a contract until 2023.

And ClaretandHugh insiders have continually mentioned that the manager sees the defensive situation as an area he must address.

  1. I think he will go back to Swansea for their CB, especially if they are relegated. The two Reeces are now looking out of the picture, unless either of them turn things round. All our CBs seem to be now under review ( apart from Rice and Cresswell – in his temporary role )
    So he could well be looking for 2.

  2. Adrian
    Rice ,Bentdoctor. Mawson , ogbonna ,
    Carvhalo , another?
    Antonio, lanzini, arnie
    Another ?

    Clear out and rebuild ? Next level 😉
    Not forgetting a few young uns on the fringes .

  3. How can they not offer Collins a new deal. He’s been brilliant this season and at 30 to 35k a week will be a relatively cheap squad player for a couple of seasons. Which should suit both the player and the club
