Kral option – The facts

By Dave Langton

West Ham do NOT need to sign Alex Kral this summer.

Reports in Italy have suggested that the Hammers have an obligation to buy the midfielder when his loan from Spartak Moscow comes to an end.

However, it has now been confirmed to us by a top insider that this simply isn’t the case.

West Ham do have an OPTION to buy Kral, but they are not compelled to do so if they do not wish to.

As a result, we have been told that Kral will be going back to Spartak Moscow at the end of the season, instead of remaining in east London.

That will not come as a surprise because he has failed to work his way into David Moyes’ plans.

Kral has only made six appearances for the club and just three of them have been starts. He has played just a single minute in the Premier League.
