If the fickle fotball gods had decided otherwise, Leeds United could’ve been staying up at the instead of us this season
However, with one game left of the Premier League season, it’s the Hammers that are safe and sound for another season with the Elland Road outfit needing to win their fixture against Tottenham Hotspur and hope results elsewhere go their way.
If Sam Allardyce isn’t able to do the seemingly impossible on the final weekend of the 2022/23 campaign, then the likelihood is that there’ll be a mass exodus of players from the Yorkshire-based club, and for a number of reasons.
Financial issues will surely dictate just how many players are able to be kept on, with players who have contracts running down perhaps not being renewed.
One player that is interesting West Ham according to The Sun, is Jack Harrison, a winger, whp according to the Transfermarkt website is the sixth highest earner at the club on a weekly wage of £50,000. If you remember, he scored a hat-trick against us last season !
It isn’t clear at this point, particularly given that Leeds are not officially relegated yet, what fee the club would demand for the 26-year-old’s services, though the Hammers interest could tempt both player and club in any event.
Honestly can’t see him as an upgrade on any of the current squad. No thanks. Would have Harvey Barnes in a heartbeat though.
