‘Give Him Away In January Please’ ‘Happy Days’ Fans React To Reports That West Ham Star Will Not Have His Contract Renewed

West Ham will not look to offer midfielder Carlos Sanchez another contract according to the latest reports. The Colombian’s current deal expires in the summer.

The 33-year-old has contributed very little since he arrived in the summer of 2018 and supporters on Twitter think it is the right decision to let the player leave:

Whether Sanchez will be offloaded in January so the Hammers can receive a fee for the player, it remains to be seen, but much may depend on whether manager Manuel Pellegrini can bring in another central midfielder.

Pedro Obiang was not replaced after he left to sign for Sassuolo, and there are a lack of options in the middle of the park who can provide cover for Declan Rice.

Sanchez may yet stay until the summer when a younger replacement can be found. The Colombian international has made three brief substitute appearances in the Premier League this season, and also played in the Carabao Cup games against Newport and Oxford.
