Hendrie so happy with Irons move

Stephen-Hendrie-HAM-AC_3129085Hamilton defender Stephen Hendrie has relayed his joy about his forthcoming move to the Irons.

The Scottish left back is due to arrive at West Ham’s training ground today and is set for a medical after which the formalities will be concluded.

Speaking to the Daily Record, his representative said: Stephen is delighted everything is now in place and his future is settled.

“He will play out the rest of the season at Hamilton ahead of a terrific move in the summer. Not even the snow was going to stop the deal.”

Hamilton were furious with West Ham over the month-long transfer saga, when the Hammers pulled out of a deal at the last minute, only to now sign the defender at a bargain price in the summer.

Sam Allardyce confirmed the deal saying: “It’s with view to a move in the summer yes. He’s one for the future, not for now.”

  1. Hi, it is great to hear both players are under lock and key. Most of my west ham friends believe that Valencia is as good if not better than Sakho. Don’t get me wrong they are both great players so it would be a shocking statement to most fans if Valencia was sold. He is a West Ham player that is loved by the fans. Most people I speak to believe that Sakho and Valencia should be our front two against Liverpool on Sunday – if they are we will get a result. But no they wont because we have a manager who loves Nolan and Carroll. We lived the dream when they were both injured, football fantastic but once Nolan and Carroll got fit we have reverted back to the same playing style as last season. I am sad and disappointed with this as are most fans. The biggest risk to us selling Valencia is that BFS will want to – I just hope our owners do not make this mistake. Valencia is world class under the right management.

  2. Will Hendrie get an opportunity under Allardyce’s management?I haven’t seen anything from the manager in giving the younger players game time and I suspect that will continue while Allardyce is manager.

  3. nolan must have been young once roman…
