ITK Romano confirms Hammer’s position


ITK Fabrizio Romano has confirmed  Claret and Hugh’s story that there is no big rush to extend Kurt Zouma’s contract at West Ham United.

And as we explained there are absolutely no other clubs looking to sign the captain who still has 18 months left on his contract plus an option.

As we revealed that means there is no big rush to sign the former |Chelsea star who has known bad knees and is unavailable to train every day as they swell up after games.

The situation does not demand immediate talks and although – barring serious injury of course – they will go ahead at some stage it will be months rather than weeks when they take place.

It seems that Roman has received similar information admitting claiming talks will take place in the future – weeks or months  – and ” we will see how it goes.”

He adds that as an important player to the club “honestly guys there are no negotiations with other clubs.”
