Soucek signing may depend on end of season decision

Tomas Soucek’s West Ham future now looks to be in the hands of Uefa as they attempt to decide what happens to the 2019/20 season when they meet later this week.

The defensive midfielder – on loan from Slavia Prague – has a clause in the deal that he will only join the Hammers if they remain in the Premier League.

But with the season on hold until April 3, and as everybody now knowing it will be much longer ,  it remains a vexed question as to whether or not the deal will or will not go through.

One assumes that should the season be null and voided then he will become a Hammer but any other scenario would leave the situation in some doubt.

Soucek has been outstanding in three games before getting injured and making a brief appearance against Arsenal in the last game before the break.

He had hit the net 11 times in all competitions in 24 appearances before arriving at the London Stadium.

He and the Hammers are now likely to be looking for a quick resolution of the ‘to be or not to be season’ by Uefa.

  1. Unprecedented, April 3rd was Wildly Optimistic. The only logical outcome sadly is null and void. If this season is written off, is gives next season a fair chance of normality….covid permitting.

  2. Good answer cat ! Obviously Bowen and sou were two excellent signings whoever that’s down too must take credit even if it’s sully! Always believed credit where credits due and open your mouth when you think it’s wrong . IE the board disliked and given many chances to change but they only thought doing a little would be enough and they did try a little to placate their opposition to firstly selling Boleyn then saying it will take us to the next level? Both unfortunately didn’t happen only the idea they could get this done on the cheap survived and now we must all concentrate on this dreadful corona more than any other thing until probably it’s eradicated end of summer. Imo COYI

  3. Surely Jack Wilshere should have Coronavirus by now? Or is itngoing to be the one thing that he doesn’t get to excuse him from playing?
