New name added to West Ham’s wish list

RyanA new name has emerged on West Ham’s transfer wish list today in the form of  Fulham’s 25-year-old right-back Ryan Fredericks.

Fredericks has been an ever-present for Slavisa Jokanovic’s side this season, contributing five assists in 28 appearances for the Championship play-off chasers.

The player is out of contract at the end of the season but Fulham claims they have the option to extend Fredericks’ contract by a further 12 months and they indeed intend to take up that option.

Southampton, Swansea, Stoke City are all said to tracking the 25-year-old. Fredericks arrived at Craven Cottage in the summer of 2015 from Bristol. Fredericks originally came through the ranks at Spurs youth and made his first-team debut against Hearts in the Europa League in 2011. He spent time on loan with Millwall, Brentford and Middlesborough.

Like Tom Cairney Fulham have slapped a not for sale warning to other clubs but rumours suggest West Ham could attempt to lure them with an offer before the transfer window closes on Wednesday.

  1. Another waste of time just to fill in your space why would West Ham want a right back when they already have Zabaleta Byram & Burke what we really need is some decent midfielders and a centre forward who can actiully score goals rather than run around and avoid getting involved like Ayew & Hernandez. Come on Moyes get the dedonker deal done ASAP
    Also I think he is seriously at fault for not having all this worked out in December so Sullivan & co could have arranged transfers early January but I thought no he has shot his self in the foot by declaring he wants to recruit uk premiership players as per my earlier posts it is obvious that we would be priced out of the market by any uk based club , which has proved to be true, & we would only be able to afford foreign based players, So get your act together or look for mother job because we will be relegated with what we have currently available

  2. Forget this guy. We need Defensive mid and a decent goal scorer.

    Dendoncker and Smolov fit the bill and both would go straight into the team.

    We could get both for approx £32m.

    Send Ayew back to Wales for the £18m they’ve offered. We’ve already got £4.5m for Slakho (up to £8m with performance bonuses which he should complete in the diddly French League).

    So that’s a spend of approx only £10m to upgrade the squad this window.


  3. I agree w above posters we should be focused on CF & CDM. But Fredrick’s is a very good RB can defend & out in a good Cross so if can get him on a good deal I would take him. I like Byram but injury prone & Zaba doesn’t have pace. So if get get him w Smolov & Dendoncker I would be happy with that.
    As 6mo left but 1yr extension available. And as we haven’t been playing wingers but WBs could be a good add.
    But CF & Mid priority
