Enner Valencia is not on his way to Galatasaray or anywhere else at the moment.
Reports from a generally unreliable Turkish media suggested that the Ecuador international was on his way to the club later this summer.
But ClaretandHugh has learned there is not a word of truth in the suggestion with soures close to the player rubbishing the speculation.
With the Hammers becoming desperately short on the striker front given Diafra Sakho’s desire to get away, there is no chance of the club releasing anyone anyway.
But a source close to Valencia told us: “Where does this rubbish come from. We have heard absolutely nothing about this. It would be nice if the media had a hint of interest that the Turkish club were interested but there is absolutely nothing.
A Twitter rumour said: “Enner Valencia has reached an agreement in principle with Galatasaray‘ after it had been broadcast on Turkish source A Spor.
Not true! Move on.
Can we get Ravell Morrison back ? . Bilic should be able to sort him out . Shame to waste a talent for the sake of relations and shaky history .
Yes I agree?? or cole as well?? we haven’t got hippo problem any more** and also perhaps sakho loved hippo not billic???? Love hate triangle,** or pentagon??
Great news, now play him with Sakho up top please..
Which bit of Sakho has handed in a transfer request/doesn’t want to play for us/refused to go to Austria do you not understand?
I know what were are told?? But sakho is a good player ** but it’s possible that that he has been unsettled because of billic,s search for a striker??but that should make him more determined to play for his place?? But if he thinks that he shouldn’t have to??,then it’s best shot of him.
Its a squad game and all of our strikers are injury prone so a new striker is a must. I don’t agree with the way the owners have gone about it however, but Sakho’s behavior has been appalling, and if the example of Amalfitano is anything to go by, he won’t play again. Judging by the club’s interested in him (Palace, West Brom and Sunderland) he should be begging Bilic for a second chance.
Yet one more piece of news from Turkey that we can’t trust at the moment…
Why would we want him to stay he has not had a good game for 18 months,
Can’t believe how fans want to keep people at this club that don’t deliver,
He had 8 good games with Sak along time ago,
We need the money to get the 2 Daves to spend some so far Tomo ,s money has covered most of what’s been spent and if Calleri joins that’s our 2 non English loans covered,
We need £ 15 million alone to cover our defensive needs unless we pick up 2 more freebies,
Plus 3 or 2 forwards,
Well if reports are to be believed Seville have got Ben yedder 9 mill euros , peanuts ?
And we are still hoping a 29 year old will be forced to sign for us . IMO its a missed opportunity , sully used to be good at these sort of deals ,?
Fingers crossed then ! Sakho is still here !!
