Reid talks back on agenda

winston-reid-west-ham-united_3009997Winston Reid’s return to training on Thursday will also signal the re-commencement of talks between the central defender and the club over a new contract .

And there’s a new mood of optimism inside the Boleyn that a deal which would see the Kiwi commit to another three or four years at the club can be done.

With just a year left on his current contract the Hammers are keen to put another in place.

And the signs are that the £75k a week wage demands allegedly put down by the player’s advisers initially will be moderated.

A source told ClaretandHugh: “The club are keen to get this sorted out as soon as possible and from what I’ve seen and heard there’s more room for optimism.

“There have been no inquiries for Winston and thus the club’s bargaining position becomes a lot stronger.

“It’s unlikely Winston will get anymore than the Hammers are likely to put on the table from any club outside of the top six and none of those have come in.”

  1. Just tell Carroll he has to take a cut until he comes up with the goals, whoever agreed to give the salary to AC when he is injury prone and is not a consistent scorer I do not understand what they were thinking, at the time no one else was interested in him, and no one ever will, but we paid out such a stupid top salary! At least Reid does his job well, It’s about time also Carroll was not the be all and end all of the Club PR, he is featured on every photo or promotion we do, and the constant supply of his selfies to the Daily Mail during the summer is a complete Joke! he wants to concentrate on getting it right on the pitch and staying injury fee, how we fell for paying £15 million is beyond me, he may be Sam’s liking hoof football, but the World Cup has shown that is not how it is done in 2014!
