Mystery over four missing Hammers


The club’s official media channels have been busy releasing videos, photos and videos of West Ham first-team players returning to stage one training at Rush Green.

The videos and stills show players arriving and being screened by club officials at the training ground as well as training in groups of four or five with David Moyes and his staff.

Claret and Hugh have carefully studied all the coverage over the last week and have identified four Hammers are missing from the official footage.

There has been no sign of Angelo Ogbonna, Michail Antonio, Albian Ajeti or Aaron Cresswell so far.

A club insider previously told Claret and Hugh that no players had refused to train but there is still a question surrounding these four players. We have been told it is difficult for the club to capture images of all players during staggered training and that some players have different training programmes.

We will take the club at their word for now and watch eagerly whether any of these players emerge.
