West Ham appear to have beaten Leeds, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Barnsley and Bristol City for the signature of young Manchester United striker Ashley Fletcher.
Although Fletcher has yet to appear in a competitive game for Manchester United, the Red Devils offered him a new contract believing he still had a future at the club. It appears he thinks his chances of breaking through to the first team will be limited under an incoming Jose with a massive budget to spend.
Last season he scored 9 goals in 27 appearances while on loan at Barnsley, including the opener in their play-off final victory over Millwall. That makes him an instant West Ham hero.
The Daily Express claim he is undergoing a medical with an announcement expected soon. I am sure they are not far wrong and we give the highest rumour rater on this one.
