Maguire makes clear why Hammers move failed


Harry-Maguire-Transfer-West Ham-Manchester-United-England

Manchester United and England star Harry Maguire has finally explained why he failed to move to the Hammers in the summer transfer window.

Claret and Hugh has learned that at one stage David Moyes asked David Sullivan to do whatever was necessary to bring the player to the club.

And at one stage it looked set to happen with a £30 million fee agreed between the two clubs. However, a settlement with the player on lost wages saw things collapse according to reports.

Kevin Nolan suggested that was the reason when discussing the mater with talkSPORT and now Maguire has given his reason for the failure to join us.

Having been stripped of the captain’s armband at Old Trafford and making only a few Premier League appearances he looked certain to be on the move.

However, that of course didn’t happen and Maguire put things in simple terms as to the reasons why not.

He said: “We just didn’t come to an agreement [to leave the club] and they were happy for me to stay and I was happy to fight for my place,” he said.

    More games for Man U, eh? Well, for sure he scored a good goal in the match between England and Scotland. Pity it was in the wrong net though. Maybe Man U are desperate to have him defending.

    Greedy and past his best.
