Hammers will carry on talking

The Hammers will carry on talking with Divin Mubama’s representatives as the winter window approaches  following his first real chance to impress this season against Burnley. What the player needs more than anything else right now is a run of games and on the face of it there  seems every chance he will get them. The Hammers play Backa Topola in Serbia on Thursday evening and there now seem every opportunity of him getting his chance either alongside Danny Ings or in preference to him as several insiders we have spoken to are hoping.

Hammers will carry on talking

Mubama has been with the club since he was eight years old and sources close to the player insist that he wants a new West Ham deal as he is much a fan of the club as he is a player.

One told us that this is not so much a financially driven deal as one where the boxes regarding his future are ticked.

Top class strikers cost an absolute fortune these days and thus it seem entirely logical the boy is now used on a regular basis starting in Serbia this week with our key insider declaring: “We need to come to an agreement and we will carry on talking.”

And one who is very close to the teenager said: ” We are confident we can get a deal done.”

  1. The fact that he cares about the club and wants to stay is massive, but at that age, you don’t want to feel held back, and that’s how it seems to me. I don’t know what Moyes’s obsession with Danny Ings is, but I cannot fathom the frustration Divin must feel when he’s on the bench, watching Danny put in such an ineffective performance.

    I’m so pleased he got his 30 minutes on Saturday. It would be interesting to compare stats (touches, chances, distance run) even with the two-thirds, one-third time bias in Danny’s favour! Fingers crossed he starts on Thursday, but he absolutely has to keep working hard and making the most of it.

    PS I’m not anti-Danny. I just don’t think he’s suited to this role. I’m sure, playing alongside another striker, he’s score 25 a season in the Championship.
