Late twist in Feghouli exit

west_hams_sofiane_feghouli_celebrates_scoring_their_third_goal_317515Sofiane Feghouli was missing from training in Germany yesterday with a club source insisting he was injured and it is not a smoke screen to mask his imminent exit.

Speculation says Feghouli days are still numbered at West Ham as he prepares for a summer exit.

Stade Rennais are the latest team who are said to be interested in the Algerian winger although his high wages could prove an obstacle for them claims Le Quipe in France this week.

According to the Turkish outlet Fotomac, Galatasaray have reached an agreement with Feghouli on a four-year deal with the 27-year-old earning €3 million per season. Fotomac goes onto state that the transfer is expected to be completed this week.

Ideally, Slaven Bilic would like to keep both Feghouli and Snodgrass but he has been told he must let one of them go if he wants to bring in Senegal midfielder Badou N’Diaye for £8.5m

  1. If it’s one out one in, both Snodgrass and Feg can go – as long as those coming in are better replacements.

    Ideally I’d be happy for the both to go to replaced by one player – Keita Balde. We don’t need N’Diaye as we already have a range of midfield options (Kouyate, Obiang, Noble, Fernandes, Lanzini, Antonio, Arnautovic).

    We have plenty of depth and back up talent in our U23s: Burke and Rice at the back; Cullen and Quina in midfield; and Holland, Samuelsen and Martinez up front.

  2. If he is injured it may turn out to be a blessing in disguise and they will move onto moving Snodgrass out, Feghouli is far more likely to create chances for Hernandez than any of his replacements in that I include Snodgrass, Ayew and Antonio. Since Antonio stopped running the channels he barely crosses the ball, I wish Slav would tell him to stop cutting inside so much, Ayew often runs down blind alleys and Snodgrass has been a complete disappointment to date, I thought he would prove to be a decent signing but he hasn’t shown us anything of the form he was producing at Hull and his dead ball delivery which was good at Hull has been shocking for us.

  3. I personally hope feghouli stays he got better as a season went on with more game time and I think he actually wants to be part of this club

  4. If feguili is injured then he’s going to go into XXXX with amy 🙂 then on the bench if he’s lucky IMO
    He doesn’t make the first 11 never unless there’s a injury crisis , ,he wants to play football by all accounts on a regular basis , wish I could see what you see in him fellas , but to me he’s pants 🙂 🙂 for his sake he needs to go IMO 🙂 kouyate and Antonio might miss a few games at the start so N’daiyi would be a good signing for us and add some depth 🙂 so Snodgrass needs to go if gouli isn’t fit 🙂

  5. Agree w Bil and 32 I like Feghouli would rather are Snodgrass sold and Feghouli settled in well and has good attitude and good cover for Antonio and others. And £4m is not enough for him. I’d we can get £8m or so for Snodgrass much better
