Report: Hammers name their price for right back

Nottingham Forest’s Matty Cash apparently remains on the Hammers wanted list but according to one new report today they are unwilling to pay £15 million for the right sided midfielder/ full back.

In fact  the 23 year old has only played one full season of Championship at right back in a team that crashed out of the play offs at the final hurdle.

The Irons have been tracking the player since last summer when Forest were quoting prices of £20 million plus and although the City Ground management have dropped their asking price £15 million may be too much for an unproven player at  PL level.

According to the Mirror, the Irons are not prepared to go higher than £10 million for the player who is a big favourite of the Forest fans.

The Mirror claims that  £6 million of that fee would be paid up front, with a further £4 million likely to come through add-ons and bonuses.

However, first offers are always notoriously low and this is another saga which has some way to run notably as Leeds are reported to also have an interest.

  1. I know that this has nothing to do with the Matty Cash transfer saga. But to put things into perspective….. Southampton has now signed Kyle Walker-Peters for £12M… WTF
    Right now there seems to be a massive difference in terms of who we think we are as a club, and who we really are.
    I am already on the verge of giving up checking ANY transfer rumours as it is a waste of time with our owners hiding in plain sight!
    I was concentrating so much on West Ham transfer rumours and speculation, that I didn’t realise actual transfers were still taking place.
