Sanchez refused West Ham departure

Hammer Carlos Sanchez refused to be loaned out for his final six months of his contract, instead opting to remain in London despite being told by David Moyes he was no longer in his plans.

As reported by Sam Inkesole on Football.London “There was interest from Turkish Super Lig side Antalayasport as well as Spanish trio Leganes, Huesca and Cadiz in taking on the midfielder on loan for the rest of the campaign. Sanchez was a £4m signing from Fiorentina in the summer of 2018 penning a two-year contract worth £65,000 a week.

The 33-year-old is out of contract this summer and has struggled with both serious injury and a lack of form during his 18 month stay in the capital so far.

Sanchez has made just six Premier League appearances so far this season having missed nine months of the last campaign with a knee ligament injury suffered in the Carabao Cup rout over Macclesfield last September.

  1. Hope he chokes on his wages of theft . Sullivan’s fault too for allowing it but if he wanted to play football would go without stealing a living sitting on his lazy arse. Wilshire another one who if had any morals would retire and payed off , also Sullivan’s partly fault not learning lessons after Carroll.

    • Think we ned to think that one through a little more. Everybody – invcluding me – said Sullivan should allow the manager and DOF to do the business which they did so although he wanted to give him one year Pelle insisted on three. Sanchez was a Husillos pick

      • Stuart Pearce said him and Moyes were looking at two players, Fredericks and Wilshire. So would say the signing of Wilshire has Sullivan all over it. Easy to blame Pellegrini though

      • How do we know Pelle insisted on 3 years? Given our owners prelediction for dishing out long or extended contracts to the injury prone and/or underperforming surely it is more likely that the longer contract for Wilshire was GSB hoping for some sell on potential?

        Only those present at the decision can really know the answer.

  2. He should have his wages cut for refusing to be loaned out and because he is not worthy of wearing the shirt.

  3. In fact Carlos Sanchez is part of the reason why Pelle had to go – together with Lucas Perez and Roberto – I wonder if Pelle would have signed any of them if they were not Spanish speaking?

    • Perez had a decent scoring record for a back up striker with limited game time.I think many of us wished he would have been available this season.

  4. 65 grand a week for impersonating a footballer. Nice work if you can get it.No wonder he wants to stay.

    • Disgraceful. Why couldn’t he be forced to accept a loan offer? If he had 4 clubs to choose from and his Manager has stated that he has no future at the club then surely this is sufficient reason to terminate his contract. No other employee in any U.K. company would be able to refuse reasonable alternative employment so why should this be any different?

  5. It’s that picture again! Celebrating the best luck anyone will ever have … actually, we’ve got a few more who qualify for that …

  6. Lack of form….?

    I think you’ll find that he is totally rubbish and that’s a completely different thing altogether…..

    Why on earth did we buy him?….. he was awful while at Villa…. did nobody watch a video?

  7. He was awful on his debut. Has proved he is of no value. Can’t imagine a worse signing. Wilshire wants to play and was great for the Gunners. Different attitude.

  8. Sanchez has to be in the hall of fame of the worst players to ever play for West Ham. I would love to know the true details of the transfer (dark arts at play). Anyone that knows anything about football can see he would not make any other Premiership team.
    As for Wilshere, who else was knocking the door down to sign him on such a lucrative deal. Alleged £100k per week for keeping warm in a gym – what a life.
