Mubama may decide to go his own way 

A new development has emerged regarding Sunderland’s pursuit of recently released Hammers youngster Divin Mubama.

Sunderland may face disappointment in their efforts to sign long-term target Mubama, as the young forward appears to be leaning towards a move to Europe.

According to BBC Sport journalist Nizaar Kinsella on X, Mubama, currently out of contract, has attracted interest from undisclosed clubs across the Premier League, Championship, and Europe. The teenager reportedly favours a move to the continent.

Sunderland’s interest in the 19-year-old West Ham forward aligns with the progressive recruitment strategy championed by Kyril Louis-Dreyfus and his team since his acquisition of the club in 2021. This approach has resulted in Sunderland having the youngest squad in the Championship for the past two seasons.

West Ham to Sunderland is a well trodden path for young Hammers, with Pierre Ekwah and Aji Alese both making the move from the Academy of Football to the Mackems.

    I’ll be very surprised if he doesn’t go the way of the vast majority of the rest of the academy products. Somewhere other than premier league starter standard. The academy is not a reliable source of premier league starters wherever it is that they go and the club consistently calls it right in not paying them inflated wages. Indeed we were Robin Hood like in how much we got for Diangana.

  • Jimbo says:

    Agree with John. Wishing Mubama every success going forward, however feels like another Sonny Perkins, with agents seeking huge sums of money for what is unproven potential only. And good luck to Ben Johnson at Ipswich too, but not a player to invest the reported £55k a week in over 4 years if we are looking to significantly progress.
