Back in the summer of 2017 when West Ham United obtained the services of Joe Hart, on a season-long loan deal, it looked as if the Hammers had solved their ongoing problem between the sticks.
With Darren Randolph having left the club, the acquisition of Hart, plus the presence of Adrian, looked as if the club were well covered when it came to the green jersey.
But it hasn’t quite worked out like that.
As the season has progressed, both Hart and Adrian have had spells between the posts but neither has managed to establish themselves as the long-term solution to the problem.
With the season coming to a close, it is being reported by the news source, metro, that West Ham United will not be activating the clause in Hart’s loan contract enabling the move to become a permanent one.
Instead, when the season ends, 31-year-old Hart will return to Manchester City, his parent club, to, no doubt, be told to find another club.
Furthermore, our referenced source is also inferring that Adrian will also be allowed to leave the club this summer, a move that will leave West Ham United, this summer, having to recruit a new #1 keeper plus a more than reliable back-up.
The Hammers goalkeeping woes are far from over it would seem!
