Hernandez update


Javier Hernandez flies into London for a medical originally planned for Tuesday but instead was carried out late on Monday such was the player’s enthusiasm to get it done and sign on the dotted line as a Hammer.

And with Marko Arnautovic now signed, the Irons are convinced the club has put the horrors of last summer’s transfer window behind them.

And with the board having backed Slaven Bilic to the hilt this summer, the pressure now moves firmly onto the manager’s shoulders to supply much improved performances and results.

The club are keen to move out Robert Snodgrass but have had no interest registered from anywhere other than an  informal inquiry from newly promoted Brighton.

Sofiane Feghouli looks to be closing in on a move to Galatasaray and Bilic has been told that for him to bring in any more signings the playing squad needs to be reduced with a couple of departures.

    Do the fegouli deal a.s.a.p and either offer snods or loan him out then get ndyie bloke ,
    They both need to move on ­čÖé

  • Alan D says:

    I would still keep Fehgouli, I think with a intelligent forward making runs for him, he will create plenty of chances.

  • JMan43 says:

    I would like is to get Jimenez and play him and Hernand z up top for us. They play together for Mexico, could have another Cottee and McAvenie type partnership.
