Mubama given route out of West Ham


Mubama given route out

Watford are reportedly interested in signing West Ham striker Divin Mubama.

The young forward has declined offers for a new long-term contract at The London Stadium, even though multiple attempts have been made. Hammers Director of Football Tim Steidten was spotted in deep conversation with Mubama during a recent match.

While several clubs are rumoured to be eyeing the player, Watford seems to be the first to make a move. Head coach Valerien Ismael is feeling the heat due to their poor performances, despite going unbeaten in their last five matches. Their main concern revolves around scoring goals.

Mubama given route out of West Ham by Watford

After 15 matches in the ongoing season, Watford sit 16th in the league, standing seven points below the play-off zone and eight points above the relegation zone. However, despite their unbeaten streak in the past five games, Ismael’s team hasn’t been delivering impressive performances.

Mubama scored in last nights EFL trophy game which saw West Ham under 21’s beat Cheltenham 4-0.

    It is unforgivable to let such a promising player give up on his dream of playing for the West Ham first team after being systematically ignored by David Moyes. But at least it appears that Tim Steidten has had a go at trying to persuade him to sign a new contract, if my reading between the lines is any good. Surely the attitude of Moyes towards academy players needs to be raised at boardroom level and he should be directed to give Mubama a chance to show what he can do. He cannot be any worse than Antonio or Ings right now!

    Deja vu Moyes ignoring his own Academy graduates. His model has not changed in 10 years and won’t now, so Mubama is looking out for himself. Hope Tim can save it but Moyes won’t give him a glimpse.

    Moyes hasn’t got a bad record when releasing players who’ve shown potential. There was all sorts of fuss when Grady Diangana went to WBA and similarly when Sonny Perkins left for Leeds. Since they’ve gone, neither have proved to be anywhere near Premier League class.
    I really don’t think that Antonio being a bit past his sell-by date and Ings performing poorly means that Mubama is ready for the Premier League right now. In the limited minutes he’s had I don’t think he’s shown real quality. He certainly has time on his side but for now, I think Moyes has got it right and has the option of course of playing Bowen in the middle.

    Mubama could join Watford (or anyone) on loan in January until the end of the season to gain experience. But I can’t see West Ham moving him on at the young age of 19 as he shows too much promise. If Mubama was 22 or 23, then it would be different.
