So far, we’ve enjoyed a terrific transfer window, and it’s surprising that we’ve conducted our business with such efficiency. As is the nature of the market, some players will be forced to depart the club, and it seems that Jordan Hugill and Sam Byram will be discarded.
According to Claret and Hugh, Jordan Hugill and Sam Byram will be allowed to leave the club this window.
In truth, the news isn’t too surprising when considering our expenditure on new arrivals. Jordan Hugill’s January move has failed to transpire into anything purposeful. Similarly, Sam Byram has failed to establish himself as a mainstay in our team. The full-back has been linked with a whole host of Championship clubs such as Nottingham Forest and Leeds United.
Here’s how West Ham supporters have reacted to the rumours on Twitter.
Flog those two and Pedro Obiang for around £25m to balance the books. Give Chich the number 14 shirt and convince him to stay.
Win the Premier League. ????

Of those four Antonio is the only one I would miss.

If we have replaced them with better then they need to go for their own good ! ⚒

Sounds like a good leaving list kouyate – so awkward moving, always falling over, never marking his man. Always getting in noble’s way

Hugill was a pointless signing lol

Will be a shame to lose Antonio & Byram ????⚽️

If Kouyate goes then Id assume they're intending on recruiting another DM. I'd happily see Snodgrass on that list too. If Hugill goes what with sicknote Carroll another striker would be needed too. Not against selling if it means we recruit further quality younger players.

As previously mentioned, for the sake of financial security, we need to sell players to compensate for the money spent on incomings. We should allow the pair to leave.
