New interest in Hammers striker


ValenciaactionEnner Valencia could be on his way to Mexican outfit UANL according to morning reports.

The Hammers are desperately hunting for a club to take the player who has been a major flop over the past two seasons and is no longer required at the club.

Sources close to the player have revealed that the Ecuador international could be on his way to South America but are also looking at Chinese options.

We were told: “There’s absolutely no chance of him finding a place in Slaven Bilic’s plans now and various plans are being looked into.

“Tigres is just one of them but the Chinese option is alive. It’s very important we get him sorted out for the lad before the end of the window.”

West Ham sources added that they were ready to take a cut on the £12 million fee they had paid for Valencia to release the wages.
