Speculation had arisen in various media outlets that co owner David Sullivan wanted to close down a release clause in the Ecuador striker’s deal.
It was believed that the player could move on should offers come in at an undisclosed figure but this is not the case.
ClaretandHugh was advised by both sources inside the club and close to the player that Valencia has no release clauses whatsoever in his deal.
We were told earlier this evening: “We have read these reports but it just isn’t true. Enner has a watertight contract – there are no get-outs whatsoever so there’s obviously no need for talks over a fresh deal.. The player is locked down tight to West Ham.”
