Irons in tough contract talks with midfielder

West Ham are involved in tough set of negotiations  aimed at keeping highly promising under 23 Conor Coventry at the club.

Talks have been going on for some time but the club feel that his representatives Base Soccer Agency are quoting figures on personal terms too high for a player with no Premier League experience.

The defensive midfielder has been in impressive form for the Development team and has been tipped widely as a star of the future with his current contract expiring in June of next year.

But the Hammers are refusing to be held to ransom at this stage having learned a very tough lesson when paying Reece Oxford around £20k a week.

Coventry joined the club in 2017 and signed a two year extension last year but there has been no breakthrough in talks which have been going on for several weeks.

Should the talks breakdown it will see any transfer fee on the 19 year old set by a Tribunal.
