West Ham to sign Manchester United striker


Ashley-Fletcher-685012West Ham appear to have beaten Leeds, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Barnsley and Bristol City for the signature of young Manchester United striker Ashley Fletcher.

It is claimed that the Hammers agreed to meet the £7,000-per-week terms that 20 year old Fletcher and his agent had been asking for.

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. RR Very HighIt 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.

    This is our 20 goals a season player we have been waiting for
    At last the 2 Dells have found a player with the right price,
    Trouble is they have played games for weeks now stupid prices are being quoted for every forward,
    They could have got Benteke for £10 million less 2 weeks ago,swapped Bony for Valencia Sakho for Barahino,
    Now we are into the second string players that no one wants,
    For Christ sake go and get Wilson and Remy
    Next it will be Fletcher on a free and how did Celtic get Demble before us,
    At least we did not get Boris,he knew when to get off a sinking ship,

    wow Bubs – i think SB, DG and DS deserve our trust after what they have delivered. They brought us payet for 10 million which has to be the transfer of the year. Lets give them time before criticizing!!

        It would appear that way GW.But don’t mention them or Hugh will receive an email complaining.

        • GW says:

          Mention who? The site of choice? I wouldn’t dare do such a thing!

          • Antman says:

            Well if you do you will only have their representatives coming here telling us what wonderful people they all are.I struggle to see them as that I’m afraid.

    8908 last year I put this post on when we had got no one and a week later I apologised for getting it wrong,
    I am hoping it will be the same
    That week we got Payet,Lanzini and Moses and 2 weeks later we got Antonio,
    Would it not be great if we signed 3 more great signings and at least 1 good loanee,
    Can’t wait to apologise
