Irons facing winger competition – report

West Ham are facing competition in their bid to sign Dwight McNeil from Burnley, according to a new report from The Sun.

The Hammers have been linked with a swoop to sign the wide player from the relegated Clarets.

However, it appears that Crystal Palace are also in the race to sign McNeil after Burnley dropped into the Championship.

The report claims the Hammers would like to pay around £10m to sign him but the Clarets want a higher fee than that if they are to let him go.

Burnley have appointed Vincent Kompany as their new manager and it remains to be seen if he is willing to sanction a sale.

McNeil has been with Burnley since 2018 and is a former England U21 international.

The 22-year-old played all 38 games last season but did not manage to score a goal, and only laid on one assist; Burnley may struggle to get the fee they want.

  1. This guy is nothing special unless it’s squad fillers we are looking for.

  2. Don’t understand why? He is a wide forward, and the report says played 38 goals nil, few assists, age 22, this is no more than we already have in our squad and U23’s. What can he give us?

  3. What an impotent lot our recruiting regiime seem to be.West Ham left to pick up the leftovers from other clubs.Moyes seems to be a ditherer in team management and .recruitment..
