Turkish stopper scouted as replacement for Adrian

KivrakWest Ham been linked with a move for Turkish goalkeeper Onur Kivrak.

According to media reports in Turkey, the Hammers are in talks with the 29-year-old Trabzonspor captain ahead of the summer transfer window.

Kivrak has kept 13 clean sheets in 27 appearances this term and has reportedly been scouted by West Ham

Slaven Bilic tried to sign the Turkey international during his spell in charge of Besiktas.

The report also claims that Trabzonspor have already turned down an initial approach from West Ham for their prized shot-stopper.

In other reports, there are claims that two La Liga clubs are planning on raiding West Ham for Adrian.

The Spanish stopper has a year left on his contract after the Hammers triggered an option in his contract to keep him at the club for another season.

However, the Daily Mirror claims that La Liga sides Espanyol and Athletic Bilbao are hoping to pay £3million to land the 30-year-old at the end of this term.

  1. Wish the heck all these / those name touting agents and media would shut up . But having said that , the two Dave’s have brought it about themselves . Too much chat without the actual doing of what they perport they are going to do . ( keep the kid off twitter as well as Gold ) . Buisness may have been about stirring people up in the past but , in the Premiership that don’t work . You can’t win a poker hand by showing your cards , any fool knows that . Bluffing can only get you so far and then when the cards are turned , ooops .
    We are pretty lucky this season to be where we are with Premiership status almost mathematically guaranteed . That luck will run out if some major changes are not made .
    Why have we been lucky ? : simple ; there are just enough teams worse than us to allow it.
    Don’t want anyone to get me wrong here , without Sullivan & Gold we would be second division or worse , and so , hats off to them . But they must learn to shut up a bit .

  2. Can’t see Adrain going to Bilbao as they only sign Basques. Adrian was born in Seville so thats one less club. Shoddy Journalism.

    • Believe this was a report from elsewhere.
      Hope you are as quick to praise all the accurate reports?!

      • How do you know that Windsor wasnt referring to the Daily Mirror journalist before jumping down his throat 😂

        • Well, I am SO sorry- maybe he thought the Mirror journo reads C & H comments, eh! 😜😂

          • He does as it happens,i just texted him to find out.He says he is proper offended that Windsor showed him up to be a muppet 😂😂

          • Well, text him back & tell him to work harder for all that money! Muppets are easy to replace with cheaper muppets-social media is full of them!😉

  3. Yeah spot on Windsor about Bilbao.Journalists just talk shyte 😁
