Valencia hesitates on big offer

Britain West Ham Valencia

CandH Exclusive

Enner Valencia is dithering about a move to Aston Villa despite being made a massive personal terms offer.

The new Chinese owner businessman Dr Tony Xia is desperate to sign the Ecuador striker and has offered the Irons around £10 million over three years.

ClaretandHugh has learned that Valencia’s personal terms would dwarf what he is earning at West Ham but he isn’t keen to step down into the Championship.

However he knows that once the Hammers have brought in new strikers he won’t get a shout at a first team slot so has a decision to make over the next four days.

Villa are the only club to have shown an interest in the player and although the deal is not yet off, the midlands outfit are having to look elsewhere as the striker drags his feet on their offer.

The Ecuador international knows he has no future at West Ham and that is the issue which could finally focus his mind on the move.

  1. Go Enner you know it makes sense.Just go.Thankyou for your time with us but just go.

  2. If his first touch with the pen is as bad as…..

  3. Tie the *******e up blind fold him and gag him and send fed express A.S.A.P.
    I’ll pay ??

  4. ( smiley ) ?

  5. Taxi for Mr Valencia please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Now if this deal went through I would have a massive (Smiley).Please go Biggins.Ok I can’t fault your effort but you are a shocker.Its like watching a f*cking kitten with a ball of wool watching him with a football,its tragic 🙂

  7. i got to be honest this player has been a real pro doesnt run to the newspapers or radio to slag anyone off and he has had some really bad stick from a lot of fans. i say thankyou for your efforts and good luck to your future i did rate him highly but he doesnt seem to fit in anymore at WH

    • He wanted to join Chelski last year thought he was too good for us ! Oops, but I do agree he hasn’t been used properly and has just not fitted in with our style of play. Was Ok with Sahko before AC arrived back on the scene In the first part of the season in 2014.
      Time for him to move on, Will be good for both us and him.
      Please can we send Obiang as a buy on get one free deal ?

  8. Well not strictly true Ray as he had to offer an apology to our medical staff after an interview he did on Ecuadorian radio when he was injured & had a pop lol.But you are right otherwise.He is still a shocker though 🙂

  9. lol Rad sorry m8 didnt know about shows how much i know lol

    • lol no problem Ray I wasn’t trying to correct you only mentioned it in passing & through total boredom lol

  10. What’s wrong with Birmingham any way ? Plenty of junctions to jump off ?
    (Smiley )

  11. Valencia seemed ok for while and showed promise , but that ( was it shoulder ) injury set him back and never fully recovered with new faces in the team . Shame he couldn’t get back up to speed really . Won’t bother me if he decides to stay though . With the way things are going we need a squad of 50 .

  12. Simple really that’s why he did not go to China,it’s not all about money,
    He wants a big club to go to,
    We should have let Lazio have him months ago,
    But we will be stuck with him Sak and Bambi,
    Because Zaza,s daddy will pall the plug Remy won’t come
    We will be told they trie everything but it did not work out
    So our season will depend on Fletcher and Luck,

  13. It will be good for him to get away but more importantly good for our fans sanity I think hehe
    Anyway any of you boys going up tomorrow enjoy & sing your hearts out.Leave other fans to whine about corporate this,corporate that.Its Mark Noble & the boys on the pitch who need your support.If other fans want to become consumed with moaning about the club let them bleeding moan.Its probably in most their nature’s anyway not just about football.Apoligises but I just had a dose of the sister site,i am now contemplating the knife,the noose or the bottle of tablets.

  14. Enner Valencia has the ability to trap the ball further than rest of the squad can kick it. I’m not saying he’s the worst player I’ve ever seen wearing our kit but he’s definitely down there in the brown smelly stuff called Boogers. £10m over 3 years? And he’s not convinced? Someone needs to tell him that Aaron Cresswell in his current injured state is nearer the top of the pecking order with regard to playing. The man is an enigma, he’s masquerading as a professional footballer and getting paid a lot of money for producing very little in return. If we can’t offload him to Villa, loan him out somewhere or give him a high viz and make him a steward!

  15. Wrong again sounds like Daddy has got what he wanted,
    Now fingers crossed he stays fit and acutely scores some goals,

  16. Time to go, we don’t love you anymore – you’re just hanging around like a bad smell – things can only go downhill for you if you stay – please go!

    • Not wrong Michael ? Its only a matter of time before he starts getting abuse on the park ?
      Can’t get me head around Bilic keep on playing him ? Its like a dejavu jelovitch in dwarf ?
      ( confused )

  17. Shame it didn’t work out. I was convinced he’d be a 15+ goal a season player; just doesn’t have the physicality unfortunately. He’d probably do OK in the championship.

    • Dead right – he doesn’t have the strength, physicality or technique required for the Premiership – the Championship should suit him down to the ground!

  18. CIA said he watched 3 games and no need for a vote ??
    He ain’t interested ? Send him out on loan . It may be difficult to move him on now ??
    His performances of late have put it to bed ? ( grumpy )
