Hammers told to launch “insane bid” only

dendAnderlecht have made it clear that only “an insane bid” will tempt them into selling Leander Dendoncker  this January.

The Hammers are reported to be heavily into the 22 year old but coach Hein Vanhaezebrouck appears determined to hold onto him and sell him at the high end of the market in the summer.

The defensive midfielder became a key player for title winning club last season and was part of  side that lost to Manchester United in the Europa League –

United themselves are reported to be keen but the Hammers are keen with some reports saying a £25 million bid is on the way.

But his coach said: “He can only leave when an insane bid comes in. Over the next six months he has to show his very best level and then we can work towards a top transfer in the summer.”

  1. Anderlecht would certainly be easier to do a deal with than Sporting lets say.This would be a great signing after the Carvalho fiasco in the Summer and could repair the owners damaged relationship with the fans.Time to stop looking at all these midfielders with relegation threatened clubs in the Prem and buy a classy Midfielder from the hotbed of European football at the moment Belgium.

  2. it’s very quiet from G & S are they down the back of the sofas looking for shrapnel as they need to get the chequebook out as we need a couple of decent signings in midfield a centre half & a proven goal scorer wouldn’t go a miss I know only 10 days in but what a statement it would be from the owners to spend money rather than going into there over inflated bank accounts I won’t hold my breath tick tock Messrs G & S

  3. They’ve spent a few quid in the last few windows… some just like a good moan, me I’m positive as.

  4. This is just another Carvalho smokescreen except this time without any news from G&S that we have submitted any interest.

  5. This Dingdonger chap is really quite something..
    He could make a big difference to the team in this crucial second half of the season.
    The Brothers should be prepared to spend up to 35 million for his signature.
