Hammers winter target wants out

Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter has made it clear he is unhappy with the Cherries and wants a move after becoming the first player the Hammers moved for in the winter transfer window.

The 28 year has made it clear he wants out of the south coast club unless he gets first team football and his statement of intent will both frustrate and give the Hammers new hope that he could join us.

In an outspoken declaration he said: “When a player my age is not playing and someone who is desperate and just loves playing football, there comes a question over whether long term it is going to the right place for me.

“Ultimately if I am not playing, there has to be a change — and I am sure the manager would understand that.

“If I don’t play between now and the end of the season and am a continued spectator then, naturally, there would a be a discussion.”

Arter has made more than 250 appearances in eight years at Bournemouth.

  1. I guess the question is; why isn’t he playing in a Bournemouth side that is seemingly similar to us in standard at the moment? If it’s because they have an absolute superstar ahead of him in the pecking order, then fair enough, but if not, then will he add to what we’ve already got? Seems like a decent, hardworking lad though, so I hope there is a genuine benefit to us signing him.

  2. We just don’t seem to know were after wanting quality players not average Joe’s coming in to our team artur evra no disrespect to Bournemouth but other than a good coach Howe in a very small club and support doing well with average players even better than fat benni at Newcastle spending little money we wouldn’t put any of their players in our squad. We need quality like Mario coming in for other positions please wake up board or better still sell up and jog on with your profits.

  3. Might been good grab in Jan bc injuries. But at 28 & no better the Noble I don’t see why would go after in summer.
    Tho Moyes likes him but think we should start buying younger preferable 27 & under.
    After be good squad player but that’s it this summer we need players who come in make team better Moyes has said it himself.
    But he needs to get over PL experience & British players like to have a mix.
