West Ham Cash bid is not enough

Senior football writer for the Athletic Daniel Taylor has confirmed stories of West Ham being in for Matty Cash, of Nottingham Forest, are true saying the Hammers opening offer of £10m paid in instalments fell way short though of getting a deal done (Milan have already put together a structured package worth £15m). Other clubs have shown interested too he adds.

Sky Sports also claims West Ham have made an offer rising to £12m for the Nottingham Forest right-back.

They claim Hammers have bid an initial £10m with £2m more in add-ons – but they face competition from AC Milan and Southampton, among other clubs. Nottingham Forrest are though to want around £18m and are unlikely to let him go on the cheap during the winter transfer window.

He would prefer to stay in England rather than a move to Italy.

The versatile 22-year-old midfielder has excelled this season in an unfamiliar right-back role, with Sabri Lamouchi having moved Cash back into that position following Tendayi Darikwa’s injury.

  1. IF we rate and want a player who is under contract, PAY for him!
    He fits the profile of the type of player that the club has stated they want. So, PAY for him.
    For years I have heard supporters say that low balling offers made for players was a ploy, with no real intention of buying these players. I’ve admittedly been a little slow in believing that we did this sort of thing, but this window more than any other displays this behaviour clearly.
    I’m expecting to see reports of us putting in a bid of £5M with add-ons for Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo shortly. In fact, I’ve even read that the snake may be on his way back due to unfinished business.

  2. So what if it’s too low now. It’s a transfer negotiation after all so who cares if Forest want 18m for him. Surely we can’t expect the club to just pay that without any negotiation. I’ve never bought a house or a car for the asking price. Negotiations have to start somewhere and 12m for a championship player is not a bad start imo

    • Maybe that’s the reason why we are where we are?
      Maybe they need to change what they are doing as it clearly isn’t working. I’m sure you’d agree that it isn’t working?

  3. Sums them up ,”we tried ”
    Well no you didn’t you put in an offer knowing it will be rejected, 2 Bob owners, can’t wait till they go ,they treat us like we are thick as they always do this ,they clearly going to get another Burnley situation and will derseve it,6 days to prevent it

  4. Totally agree hammer JK but 12 mil is taking the Michael at but don’t you think ! If I was the player I would be thinking -‘ is that all they think I’m worth ‘and be wondering if I really
    Want to play for them !

  5. 12 mm is a bad start if another bidder has already offered 15 mm. If this story is true it shows the board’s lack of acumen.

  6. It’s the same thing we had with Joe Lolley in the summer. Aston Villa were trying to unsettle him but never made a sensible offer. Same thing now. Come back with an offer of >£25m or go away. See you in the Championship next year 😉

  7. We will 100% be relegated, all other teams are strengthening, we offer way below the transfer fee and get nothing! Championship here we come.

  8. If we cannot add to squad this window we are relegated. Squad is totally undermanned. No rotation, no impact subs, no depth in most positions,, with permanently injured players unable to contribute anything positive on the pitch.

  9. DM has said that there’s not much available in window, so loans or proven players are the order of the day. He also said buying for the future is possible. This one looks just that. Didn’t we get Antonio from Forest for a snip?
