West Ham have told ClaretandHugh that a pre-season tour of the United States is a real possibility but that they are also exploring other options.
Reports arose yesterday with our pals at kumb.com that the club has provisionally booked friendlies against Houston Dynamo and Seattle Sounders, both of whom feature in the MLS (Major League Soccer).
And last night a senior club source revealed that the American situation was being explored “along with other possibilities.”
We were told: ” We have to go somewhere on tour. That’s important. America is an option along with South Africa and the Asian/Pacific region.
“We are very much a club on the move and need to act as the big clubs do. We are looking at various possibilities and nothing has been ruled out or in at this stage.”
