Smolov snubs West Ham’s cheap deal

fedor_smolov_of_fc_krasnodar_celebrates_after_scoring_a_goal_dur_624215West Ham will not be signing Fedor Smolov before the 11 pm transfer deadline this evening after the player himself released a statement saying he decided not to move telling his club and his agent to stop negotiations with West Ham saying his club deserved a higher financial offer.

The 27-year-old  said “I have decided not to move to another team this winter,” he said in a statement released by Krasnodar.

“Firstly, it would not be absolutely correct in relation to my current club – we are only one point behind in the struggle for a place in the Champions League. Secondly, I have spent two and a half years in Krasnodar, and I think that the club has the right to receive a decent compensation for my transfer. When I realised that this might not happen, I asked the club and agents to stop any negotiations on this topic.

 “This winter, many negotiations were held, but there was no proposal that would be acceptable for the club and me. 

“I will continue to work and play in Krasnodar to help the team achieve results and prepare well for the World Cup, and in the summer I will wait for proposals that Krasnodar will meet my goals

  1. The cheap skates do it again please just sell the club asp

    • Again, Razor clearly has first hand insight to what he wants, how good he is, what our scouts, manager and board felt his worth was, and what the board were offering.

      Razor spits ill-founded opinion again. Please just stop commenting asAp…

      • Clearly he was worth more than a snikers bar a bunch of sour grapes bought with a bag of gold chocolate money left over from the Christmas bonus tree 😎
        There is no excuse !
        What was the offer Sybil !!😉

  2. There you go straight from the horses mouth.. ….

  3. What a joke, I have always tried to look for the positives of what our owners have achieved for us, rather then their flaws.

    But I’m on fin ice of completely losing all faith in them, if I haven’t already.

    If we don’t sign Dendoncker, all faith will be lost.

    Such sad times Moyes deserves better., give the man a fighting chance to succeed.

  4. No point commenting on it if we don’t know what was offered but his statement is slightly odd most players especially ones that are not one club players would rather be sold on the cheap and make up the money in salary, he looks pretty average anyway and unlikely to be in the first team when all players are fit, has scored a lot of goals for Russia but never set the world alight at club level.
