West Ham midfielder deal done

West Ham have completed a deal with Villareal for 23-year-old midfielder Pablo Fornals Claret and Hugh have been told this afternoon.

Multiple sources in Spain and England have now confirmed that the two clubs have come to an agreement for around £24m and that an announcement could happen in the next 48 hours.

Aston Villa is understood to have come in late with interest for the player causing West Ham to accelerate their deal with the Spanish club to get it over the line.

Claret and Hugh understand the player is yet to sign his contract but that could be a formality. Fornals scored just five goals and provided six assists in all competitions in 48 appearances last season as Villareal struggled.

West Ham cooled their interest in Celta Vigo midfielder Stanislav Lobotka and switched their attentions to Pablo Fornals who worked under Manuel Pellegrini and Mario Hussilos while at Malaga in their youth setup.

  1. Deal done? Not really is it? Tellus when he’s actually signed.

    • I’m with you Whambo.
      Why do CandH announce this as a done deal.
      It’s not the first time.
      Just a way to get more people to log on. and see those constant ads.
      Tell us when’ it’s really official and he doesn’t go and sign for Everton.

  2. Deal done? Not really is it? Say deal done when it’s is finalized.

  3. Lanzini replacement???

  4. Hugh says three assists, Sean says six. Only one way to settle this….fight! I’d pay to see that:)

  5. I take it the board don’t like this one?

  6. I don’t know anything about him except what I read . Can someone tell me is he good enough to improve us ? ⚒

    • I know all about him. I’ve been following his career for about 3 days now and I’ve watched him a load of times on Youtube. I can tell you that as a player, he likes to play somewhere in the middle.

  7. Too much speculation and fake news around now a days…I will believe it when I see him with a West Ham shirt on. Great signing if we pull it off.
