‘Absolute Steal’ ‘Worth So Much More Than That Already!’ Fans Delighted That West Ham Will Snap Up ‘Bargain’ Midfielder

‘Absolute Steal’ ‘Worth So Much More Than That Already!’ Fans Delighted That West Ham Will Snap Up ‘Bargain’ Midfielder

West Ham will sign Tomas Soucek for £16.5m if and when they secure their Premier League status, according to reports in England.

The Czech international is currently on loan from Slavia Prague but a transfer fee was also agreed so he could move on a permanent basis if the Hammers’ stayed in the top flight.

Considering the form Soucek has been in since the restart, fans on Twitter think it will be money well spent:



It is not always easy to adapt to a new country, especially when you are coming from a league which doesn’t have the highest quality of football.

However, Soucek looks perfectly suited to the English game, with his height and physicality making him a tremendous asset. The three-month break in fixtures also likely helped him to settle at his new club and he has gone from strength to strength in recent weeks.
