West Ham Set To Net £6.6m From Deadline Day Deal

West Ham forward Javier Hernandez has joined Sevilla for an undisclosed fee, the club have confirmed, but Football.London report that the Hammers will pocket £6.6m from the transfer.

Sevilla are said to have paid around €8m (£7.2m) for the Mexican international but 5% of the fee is handed to FIFA as a solidarity payment. It means the London club have lost around £10m on the forward they signed from Bayer Leverkusen two years ago.

With the player having reportedly handed in a transfer request, and with less than twelve months left on his contract at the London Stadium, it seems to be a pretty good deal.

It does, however, leave West Ham short of options upfront. Summer signing Albian Ajeti is the only real backup for first-choice forward Sebastien Haller, with Jordan Hugill out on loan at QPR and Michail Antonio set for a lengthy spell out with a hamstring injury.
