Desperate to keep hold of Reid,the manager provided an update on the central defender’s situation earlier today.
He said: “We’ve done as much as we possibly can [to keep Reid]. It was probably the longest [set of] negotiations I’ve ever seen with a player.
Whether we can get there in the end, I’m not sure. That’s in the chairman’s hands, not mine.
“I just hope, with us doing so well this year, and us moving into the new stadium, is there a bigger or better club around than West Ham for Winston Reid? I’m not so sure there is, you know.”
