CandH Exclusive by Sean Whetstone
While some bookmakers have West Ham at evens to land James Ward Prowse that’s a far cry from reality.
Not only do Southampton value him at £75m essentially pricing him out of the market but Claret and Hugh have learned the player is very settled indeed on the South coast.
A source close Ward Prowse family has told CandH that James and his family are extremely happy in Hampshire and that his young son has just started at a good school.
The couple and little one have a great house in the New Forest in the wonderful surroundings.
We have been told that he isn’t interested in a move to a bigger club right now and the 27-year-old is content to see out his existing contract with the Saints.
The club captain signed a new five year contract just last August to take him to 2026 and is believed to have an option for two years after that.
Thus a transfer is looking less likely by the day.
