Three facing Hammers exit door

By Hughie Southon

West Ham are ready to allow Arthur Masuaku to leave the club if they receive the right offer.

And Andriy Yarmolenko will also be allowed to leave this winter given he is out of contract next June should the club receive an offer.

The DC Congo was almost unbelievably given a new deal under Manuel Pellegrini which took his departure date to 2024 with a two year option available to club and player.

Yarmolenko, meanwhile, is out of contract at the end of the season and the club faces a major £18 million loss on the transfer fee they paid for the Ukranian.

Whether the club will find buyers for either remains to be seen but Yarm’s departure will ease pressure on the wage bill given his personal terms reported to be in excess of £100k a week.

Masuaku has fallen right down the David Moyes pecking order and has been poor in his appearances against Genk and as a sub against Liverpool on Sunday.

If the club could get £5 million for the pair of them they would be more than happy!

Darren Randolph is also excess to requirements and should a club make the right offer he too will be on his way through the exit door.
