Mubama agents outrageous demands revealed

By Sean Whetstone

Divin Mubama’s representatives want Premier League first team starter wages  which are around £25k a week for their client which has led to a stand-off in negotiations on a new contract. Essex based Elite Management agency has made some outrageous financial demands for their 19-year-old client.

Mubama has made just two appearances totalling 33 minutes this season with 24 minutes plus 4 added minutes against Lincoln and 1 minute plus 4 minutes of added time against FC Freiberg. Last season he played 177 minutes in six appearances for the West Ham senior team including three Premier League appearances.

He started the Europa Conference League game against FCSB playing the first 77 minutes coming on for the final 35 minutes of the game against Laraca whilst in the FA Cup he played 12 minutes against Derby with 3 minutes against Arsenal, 32 minutes against Brentford and 18 minutes against Leeds United in the Premier League last term.

West Ham are keen to send Mubama out on loan to a Championship side to cut his teeth in regular first team football but want him to sign a new contract in advance of that. Should Divin fail to agree new terms he  will follow a long list of Academy prospects who have left to pursue their football elsewhere, these include  Benico Baker-Boatey, Harrison Ashby, Manny Longelo, Jamal Baptiste, Sonny Perkins, Bowen Phillips, Amara Nallo, Divine Mukasa, Armstrong Oxoflex, Aji Alese and Pierre Ekwah.

    It would be nice to see Divin Mubama playing more for the Hammers this season, but for whatever reason he’s hardly had a sniff. It’s difficult to get into a team that’s top of its group in Europe, into the quarters of the Carabao Cup and top half in the league.

    Of the 11 Academy prospects that left, none of them have turned out great so far. Maybe Mubama isn’t Premier League quality yet?

    Perhaps this provides some colour around his lack of game time. I know it is not popular to say, but not all Moyes fault, it seems. And how many of those other academy graduates who left are really a loss to West Ham? None, IMO
