Report: Iron set for exit


West Ham defender Issa Diop could be nearing an exit from the club this summer, according to a new report.

L’Equipe has now reported that the centre-back could be set for a switch to Lyon back in France.

We have reported that there is interest from the Ligue 1 club in a deal to bring the defender back to Ligue 1.

And the new report claims that Lyon are making an attempt to finalise the transfer in the coming days.

Talks are said to be ongoing between the Hammers and Lyon over a deal, although no fee is mentioned.

Diop is deemed an expendable member of the Hammers squad, particularly after the signing of Nayef Aguerd from Rennes, which was confirmed in the last fortnight.

If an acceptable bid is tabled, there is little to stop West Ham from accepting the offer, and potentially reinvesting.

Keep a close eye on this one over the next few weeks.

    Why are we talking of selling Players in vital positions before we have bought the cover for them ?

      “Why are the club focusing on one transfer at a time?Why can’t they negotiate all the contracts they need in one go? Surely we have enough Recruitment staff.”
