Hammer wants to stay to fight for his place

The agent of West Ham winger Andriy Yarmolenko, Vadim Shabliy says he has had no discussions over an exit for his client over the summer.

There have been suggestions he would be sold and could play in Russia but it appears he is keen to fight for his place as a Hammer.

West Ham signed Yarmolenko on a four-year on a reported £115,000-per-week deal from Borussia Dortmund for £17.5million in 2018.

His wages are likely to a stumbling block for any move outside of the Premier League.

He has certainly put himself in the world stage shop window with his performances and goals in the Euro 2020 Championships.

The Ukraine captain scored against North Macedonia on group C earlier this week picking up the man of the match award.

He also scored in Ukraine’s plucky 3-2 loss against Holland in the opening game.

Yarmolenko will be playing again on Monday when he leads his team out for the final group game against Austria.

  1. Easy to forget the serious injury problems he’s had. No-one can question the guy’s attitude. He could be a real asset fully fit.

    • I agree. I’d like to see what he can do once fully fit. Could keep Bowen out the team or even be a decent back up striker.

  2. I’d be pretty happy on £115K per week, too. Doesn’t really matter if I’m not playing regularly, just as long as I play for Ukraine. My agent would agree and if you want me gone – it’s going to cost you.

  3. If I was one footed and over 30 I would fight for £115,000 a week too!

  4. Ooops…Oh well, we may be forced to be flexible because he will NOT earn what he is currently earning with us by moving anywhere else. We may be forced to look at the positives and try to utilise him. As we’re playing in Europe, his style could be the key to unlocking certain teams defences.

  5. Personally, I’d love Yarmolenko to see out his West Ham contract. He didn’t get much of a look in after he returned from injury, but now he’s showing his class in the Euros as Ukraine captain. Some complain that he has no pace…… but neither does Harry Kane. Yarmolenko’s touch is excellent, he has a sweet left foot, and his right isn’t as bad as some reckon. Keep him – we’ll need that experience in the Europa League.

  6. Although he’s doing well in the European Championship at WH he’s still looking surplus to requirements. 115,000 off the wage bill that’s approaching 6 mill per year ! His performances and minutes on the pitch don’t add up. Sell ASAP.
