West Ham want to keep Robert Snodgrass this summer, the Football Insider reporter Peter O’Rourke has claimed.

We are said to be one of a number of clubs who have enquired about signing the player on loan, but the Hammers have rebuffed all approaches for the winger.

Snoddy was deemed surplus to requirements earlier this summer by the London club but has since worked his way back into manager Manuel Pellegrini’s first-team plans.

The 30-year-old has played regularly during pre-season and is now likely to be included in the squad when West Ham face Liverpool on Sunday week.

His long-term future still looks to be uncertain, however. The Hammers have three other players in Felipe Anderson, Andriy Yarmolenko and Michail Antonio who favour playing on the right wing.

It could be the case that they may have a change of heart before the loan window closes on August 31st. Do you think we will sign Snodgrass before the end of the month? Let me know in the poll:

  • I’ve said it before, we are not going to get Snoddy back at least for the moment so let’s just forget it and play De Laet as our no 7 he was our stand out player in the friendlies and MOM playing in that position. And he’s not on £40k a week and there’s no signing on fee. It’s a no brainier just give it a go.

  • I go along with you, Colin.

    Add to that Adomah switching back to the right, if needed, with Green down the left.

    My worry is Bruce plays Elmohamady as a right wingback ahead of De Laet. That would fit in with previous form, together with the current move for a fifth goalie. If Bruce brings in Hyland, surely he must move Bunn on. West Brom were sniffing.
