‘I’d Be Gutted’ ‘Wouldn’t Be The Worst Business’ West Ham Fans Debate Potential January Exit For Record Signing

‘I’d Be Gutted’ ‘Wouldn’t Be The Worst Business’ West Ham Fans Debate Potential January Exit For Record Signing

West Ham forward Sebastien Haller has very much remained on the periphery since the arrival of manager David Moyes. The club’s record signing has only made three starts in the Carabao Cup this season, with Michail Antonio having been preferred up front for league games.

The club are reportedly still interested in Bournemouth’s Joshua King, with the Norwegian international’s contract set to expire in the summer, and some fans are predicting that Haller could depart in January to make way for King’s arrival. Supporters on Twitter are very much split on whether that is a good move:

Haller is clearly not a good fit for Moyes’ system, and much like with Felipe Anderson, a loan move away for the Frenchman may be the best solution for now. King’s arrival is not guaranteed to happen, though. He could sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club if he so wishes in the New Year.

The Cherries may not want him to leave for nothing at the end of the season, and they could encourage him to move to the London Stadium if the Hammers do make a decent bid in January.
