Ings to go?


Ings to go?

It will not come as a surprise to CandH readers that Danny Ings is likely to leave the Hammers only six months after joining. The third highest paid player in the club at £125k per week he has contributed just two goals in 17 appearances for the club.

Ings was signed  in January , when we were in relegation trouble and desperately needed a marksman in front of goal. He cost us £15m on a two-and-a-half-year deal from Aston Villa but he has had difficulties in adapting to the club and David Moyes playing style.

And now ex-Hammer Frank McAvennie has stated  that he’s been told it wasn’t Moyes who wanted to sign him anyway!

The striker was left out of the team for the Europa Conference League final and was not called from the bench during our 2-1 win over Fiorentina

As Scamacca is injured and could leave and with Michail Antonio unsettled, the main striker is seemingly up for grabs.

McAvennie told West Ham Zone: “Someone told me it wasn’t David Moyes who brought him in. It’s starting to look as if it might be right.

“He’s an out and out striker but that’s not what David wants. We don’t create that many chances.

“He’s wanting someone to hold it up and bring others into play, and that’s why Antonio is playing.

“Scamacca can score goals, he’s injured but he can still score goals. Ings can score goals, he’s done it all his career. But that’s not the way West Ham play at the moment, they’re not creating enough chances for a striker like Ings to feed off.

“So I don’t know, maybe he just turned up and [Moyes] said ‘what are you doing here?’

“It’s not a team for Ings so he’d probably be moving on I imagine.

“He’ll want to play and score goals. If you’re not wanted you’ll want to go.”

As reported previously, this may be a fabulous opportunity for the young Divin Mubuma to stake a claim
