Three facing Hammers exit door


nortWest Ham are ready to let Havard Nortvdeit leave in the summer as the fall-out from last summer’s dreadful transfer window continues.

Nortveidt hasn’t worn a Hammers first team shirt since the disastrous FA Cup humiliation by Manchester City on January 6 and should a club come in with a reasonable offer the Irons will cut their losses on the £38k a week midfielder.

Nortveidt has made just 13 Premier League  appearances several as sub notably to the out of favour Sam Byram since he arrived at the club, and has failed to make any sort of serious impact.

He and out of contract James Collins are earmarked for departures this summer with the central defender’s contract coming to an end whilst the club are still ready to entertain offers for Sofiane Feghouli.

ClaretandHugh was told: “We won’t stand in Havard’s way whilst James  is a player who could receives offers. Sofiane is of interest to a couple of European clubs.

    I don’t think Nordveit has been given a fair crack of the whip, his natural position is defensive midfield, yes he has made one or two mistakes but nearly the entire team have made numerous of those, he is also a utility player in the JOB mould not necessarilly first name on the team sheet but will always put a shift in. Right wing is definitely a position where we have to lose one or two, Feghouli hasn’t got blistering pace but he does work hard even so 4 into 1 position doesn’t go hopefully they will buy a genuine left winger with a lot of pace. Kind of sad that we are already looking forward to the summer transfer window because there isn’t much left but to get a few points for safety this season.
