Hammers struggle to get decent exit deal for midfielder

West Ham are struggling to get a decent loan deal from Torino for attacking midfield flop Nikola Vlasic.

The Hammers had inquries from Turkish outfits ready to offer his full wages  but we understand that the £27 million player rejected all overtures from the country.

And that has left the Irons with just the Torino option on their table  with the Italian outfit making it clear they are unready to  pay the full personal terms.

Despite showing more encouraging form in pre-season – as was the case with now departed Issa Diop towards the end of last term – manager David Moyes sees no future for the player at the club.

The 24 yea old Croatian now looks certain to be involved with the Serie A club this season unless a better offer emerges over the next few days.

He has managed just one Premier League goal in 19 Premier League appearances with most of those being as a substitute.

  1. Won’t miss him that’s for sure ! Why didn’t west ham just say we’re selling you to highest price and getting wages paid or you stay in reserves? I’m sure would have seen west ham are bigger than any players tantrum then and get sold for best price for west ham .

  2. As my sole focus is only on West Ham, I began to wonder how other clubs manage their “misfits”, because they naturally have them too.
    I think that the problem must be that with the Premier League being the highest paying league, everywhere else is a step-down and recouping the transfer fees can be impossible outside of the Top Clubs in Europe.

  3. Vlasic like Diop and to an extent Benrahma have all been victims of David Moyes poor man-management. He openly plays a core of players and makes it clear to those not in the core that they are not wanted. He has had short term success with this, but core players finished the season worn out, and by the look of the pre-season have not recovered. Meanwhile, several are out or on the way, and yet again he does not effectively sub when we were struggling even though more are allowed. We are in peril here.

    • I think you’ve hit the nail on the head there.Pete.
      It seems that Moyes is much more stick than carrot with anyone other than his 1st 11.
      Even then they aren’t immune, look at how Soucek was handled, he looks like a scared rabbit now. Stuart Pearce apparently left to pursue new opportunities and hasn’t been seen or heard of since. Diop refuses to play!
      I’ve never known a time when so many are trying to exit the club at the same time.
      It’s a worry that’s for sure.
