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.


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.

What are your thoughts? Do you agree? Let us know!

  • I feel Antonio and Obiang can still play a part. Every position needs a back up, with our injury history we need plenty of those. Recruiting isn’t about like for like replacement, it’s creating strength in depth. We want cup runs so everyone will play important parts. Snodgrass, Hugill, Byram, some of the younger, stuttering players can be moved on but last years first team need to stay. Caveats being, can we let Ried and Carrol go for free asap.

  • Not related to this thread, but I hope the manager plays Declan in the warm up matches in the role that he wants him to play. This will encourage him to sign a new deal and settle into the position the manager wants him to play (eg Def mid). A lot of people are saying we need a new player for that position, but hopefully Declan can make it his own and sign a new deal with the club. It will be nice to see a homegrown playing regularly and inspire our youngster’s to follow his lead into the first team.
