Report: Irons want Man Utd outcast

West Ham have again been linked with a January bid to sign Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The 24-year-old has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford and has struggled to break into Erik Ten Hag’s team.

He has played just four minutes of Premier League football this season and the Manchester Evening News now reports that the Irons could swoop to bring him into the club.

Wan-Bissaka is represented by Unique Sports Management, who helped facilitate Maxwel Cornet’s move to the London Stadium.

Both Mikey Antonio and Aaron Cresswell are also represented by the same agency.

No fee is mentioned in the story but United are said to have informed Wan-Bissaka that he can find another club and that they won’t stand in his way.

United paid £45m for him when they secured his signature from Crystal Palace but they will have to take a serious hit on that fee if they wish to offload him.

  1. A big fat NO. Moyes wants to go to a possession based team, has he not realised by now key tobthus is teo very good technical full backs. WBS is certainly not that. If Moyes attempts to sign him it just confirms he is all over the place and has no clear strategy. Coufal is such a better rb than this lad. I wud prefer see Ashby at rb. If Moyes has anything all about him this us surely a rubbish link. The club should block this move at all costs.

    • Thoroughly agree. Why buy someone that has failed at another club and would no doubt want an exorbitant salary when you could play Glen Johnson in his best position or persuade Harrison Ashby to stay – assuming they are going to sell Vladimir Coufal. If this goes through it will not only confirm that Moyes has no stragey whatsoever but will also confirm that any decent youngster would be completely mad to sign up for our so called “Acadamy” as there is zero chance of being considered for first team football no matter how good you are.
