Hammers waiting for Bowen to arrive in London

Jarrod Bowen – despite widespread reports to the contrary – has still not arrived in London to conclude a move to West Ham.

And the club have admitted that whilst they have been told – and hope – that he is on a train to the capital, they have no firm assurance that’s the case.

The club has been dealing with the player’s agent who is looking for his own fee but admit that, whist Bowen is believed to have completed his medical without problems at Hull his whereabouts early on Friday evening remain a mystery to them.

We were told by a senior source on e mail: “We really don’t know. We hope he is on a train but we don’t know!”

However, Sky Sports  journalist Kaveh Solhelko is reporting on Sky Sports News that he has been told by a person involved in the deal that the player has completed his medical in Hull and that he is on his way to the London Stadium to meet David Moyes.

  1. We are a complete joke, and a laughing stock for the rest of the Prem,,,
    Del Boy, Rodney and Grandad strike again.

  2. I am fed up with this Sullivan should have sorted this earlier rather then try and get a few quid off . I guess we’re going to hear the normal crap , we tried but was to late to get it over the line for stupid reasons.

  3. Will he sign won’t he sign I think we all know the answer to this question
    Fingers crossed I am wrong

    • Read that Bowen is wanting a move to Newcastle.

    • As we have been saying all evening – he was not in London – arrived from leeds where the mdical was carried out at 9.01

      From the BBC: Hull striker Jarrod Bowen has arrived in London in order to complete his move to West Ham.

      The Hammers agreed a £25m fee with the Tigers earlier today but the transfer has been held up as negotiations continued over the player’s personal terms.

      However, the fact that Bowen is now in the capital is being viewed as significant.

      Bowen had a medical in Leeds earlier today, so it would seem to be just a matter of time before the deal is completed.

  4. Hope he actually makes it on time. Would be good if he put something on his own twitter page, does make you wonder

  5. Reading various reports he was hoping Steve Bruce would be interested, as he signed him from Hereford to Hull when manager there? But Bruce not interested apparently already covered in his department at Newcastle. Makes me wonder on his attitude to want to play for the Hammers him taking so long coming down to London? Also his wages at Hull were quoted as to being £9 grand a week so even if he was relagated with the Hammers 50% of 60,000 would still make him more his current deal with Hull = 30,000 to play in the championship if the worst was to happen??? Not bad eh??

  6. Takes on average 3 hours Hull to London on a train so if he the medical at 7pm 🤔

  7. kin agents
    this as the look of going bandy
    Not talked to david moyes yet ??????????i find that very very strange
    or the agent is pulling a flanker

  8. He’s on his way to the London stadium to meet with Moyes.

  9. So a lad we are trying to sign for £20 mil is making his own way to London on a train and we cant get hold of him, is it 2020 or 1920?????

  10. On a train?
    Why haven’t we sent a car to pick him up?

  11. Some people just don’t get it ? Hull is nearer Newcastle he was waiting on their call that never happened? Looking like reluctantly having to come to London? Talk about Take your time son? What other reason to stay in Hull till 7pm ??

    • This is not looking good for us imho. There again we have subjected to this standard of horse trading for the last 10 years.

    • Dont want like people have said he wanted to play for Newcastle so he wont give 100% every game and it looks like it wont happen which I would be glad of I think we have had a poor window were down already so cant wait for the championship next season I say sarcastically hate moyes and hate the board u have destroyed this club see u in 2 years Sunderland in league 1

  12. Like the news the deals stalling on a relegation clause believed to be 50% pay should we get relegated whereas Bowen’s people want a release clause inserted in contract. Makes sense to me. Why would a player want a big move up to the premier league only to go back down again six months later on half pay?

  13. Will be a good signing I think if it happens. Read a number of reports that the player would rather stay in the north and preferably at Newcastle United..Hopefully he signs before the deadline

  14. According to BBC Sport Bowen has arrived in London!

    • He must be lost and his phone battery died.It happened to me once. Lol why a private team car can’t be sent is beyond me.Was listening to Talk Sport with someone explaining how they were supposed to be in London last minute and they barely made it before the deadline.

  15. Oh dear, if this doesn’t happen there will be uproar, understand entirely a relegation release clause, that is where we are, when will our owners grow up, and be professional

  16. Bowen’s at the London stadium with his family meeting Moyes.

    • Absolutely brilliant news. With the arrival of 2 quality new signings plus a back up keeper at last real hope of staying up. COYI.

  17. He will go to Newcastle who will not have any problem of paying him what he wants because he is with it ..simple they have messed around to much I think its over

  18. Might as well go to bed then.

  19. Probably just another Hugill anyway.

  20. He’s signed. Happy days.

  21. Untwist ur knickers everyone… deal done ✅

  22. How many hours left is there in the window?

  23. He sounds a bit like he’s got a high opinion of himself

  24. Sounds a bit mercenary to me

  25. Football is mercenary. I seriously hope he has got a high opinion of himself. All the best players always have had. This lad is making what is probably the biggest decision of his life. Wouldn’t you try to get the best deal possible? Dear God, criticism already? Only 15 minutes into his West Ham career? That’s the way to make the lad feel welcome, eh?
