West Ham to sell £40m man after bust-up with David Moyes

Posted by

West Ham may be forced to alter their transfer strategy this summer in order to cover the central midfield spot. Yet it’s not to substitute Declan Rice.

Reports have emerged that Czech midfielder Tomas Soucek has been involved in an argument with David Moyes, as per Football Insider. The Hammers will now be under pressure to make a decision on his future, unless Moyes and Soucek can reconcile their differences. There was little more information about the extent of the issue nor the subject of the problem.

Soucek has been ever-present for Moyes.


This does however come off the back of reports about Soucek’s contract negotiations hitting a wall. West Ham had been discussing a new deal for the 27-year-old in order to better reflect his value to a team performing admirably in the Premier League over the last two seasons.If West Ham do feel forced to sell Soucek, they may well receive a decent fee for him but finding a replacement could be difficult, no matter how much they have to do it. Soucek’s presence in midfield is not easily replicated and he suits Moyes’ system down to the ground.

  1. Same old West Ham story.Appalling history in the transfer market.Every year is the same ,huge numbers of players they are “interested” in but rarely does a transfer materialise.Make ludicrous low offers knowing they will be turned down and make that an excuse.I will be surprised if they make many signings this summer and even if they do it will be a last minute desperate situation.First went to Upton Park on my dads shoulders in 1938. Would like to see some real success before I pass on,not much chance unfortunately.

    1. Totally agree with your remarks. Remember what they said when they moved us. No more selling our best players. And buy better players

    2. You don’t have a clue then, one is already done and the fitness test passed off yesterday. Leave football to people who know rather than sit in your arm chair acting like you do

    3. Absolutely right. Same old story with sadly the same result. My dad took me when
      I was eleven in 1961 nothing has changed.

    4. Hope you can hang around long enough Alan! A supporter since 1938 deserves free season tickets. They obviously need a larger squad when playing two games a week, and more players up front wouldn’t hurt.

  2. Another ridiculous article. There has been no bust up between Moyes and Soucek, stop spreading rubbish.

  3. Soucek Is one of the best midfield players in the premiership but the new contract he is being offered is poor so he feels disrespected.

    Stories of 200k a week for 6 years for Rice have made this worse.

    Have to let him go now
