Update on today’s Soucek contract talks

West Ham today had their second round of talks on a new deal for Tomas Soucek’s representatives with the club wanting to offer the Czech midfielder a new five year deal.

The defensive midfielder comes out of contract in 2024 and any new deal would keep him at the club until he is 31 years old.

The Hammer of last season has not been in the form of that campaign and at this stage the club and his agent has been unable to come to a deal.

That may well be down to the new role he has been handed by Moyes which has seen him playing a purely defensive role by and large in front of the back four.

With no agreement in sight after today’s talks it would come as no surprise to see the 26 year old deciding to stride forward more as he did when so successful last term.

  1. Here we go again Winston Reid all over again. A 5 year contract the way he is playing !! I thought the club were saying they were not going to be caught like this again. Such rubbish. I would not offer him more than a 2 year extension. Great to see Moyes involved in the negotiations – he will probably mess this one up too. He must have all our top summer transfers in place and nothing to do. I would have thought he has enough to worry about to improve our performances starting with dropping Soucek this weekend. If he plays Soucek this weekend then in my opinion Moyes has lost the plot.
