West Ham have yet to make up their mind up on the future of Robert Snodgrass, according to the Birmingham Mail.

Football.London reported that the 30-year-old was put up for sale early in the summer but Manuel Pellegrini has used the winger regularly in pre-season.

With the likes of Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko signed to fill the wings, Snodgrass’s game time is likely to be limited, with players such as Michail Antonio and Marko Arnautovic also able to play out wide.

Steve Bruce is believed to be keen to recruit the Scottish international on a second successive loan spell, and the Birmingham Mail say we would be the frontrunners.

Considering Snoddy’s success whilst at the club, that is no surprise. The midfielder would likely be keen to join up with his former teammates once again.

However, the decision does not lie with the Scot. Pellegrini and the Hammers will make the call in the next 10 days, and most fans will be hoping that he’ll be allowed to return to Villa Park.

  • Be good to get him back with us but at the end of the day at least if he stays where he is he won’t be playing against us next season and watching how relatively easy it was for him to score against us that’s a good thing.
    It’s really a complicated situation for West Ham because his salary is low for a PL player but his age is against him, if they agreed to loan him to us on a loan to buy basis that might just suit them, because in another year his contract will be up and his value virtually nothing.
    On a different subject please someone get Jack Grealish to publicly state where he wants to be next season and put and end to all of the crazy speculation.

  • Why wasn’t the title of this piece “Villa waiting on key decision to swoop in for Snodgrass”? Similarly for the one about the 5ft 9 teenager, why not just say Woodburn? This is clickbait style and demeans this site. Bitterly disappointed.

  • I think Jbd you are being a touch arse as if you follow the club and forums you would know who those players are.
    Get off your high horse.

  • I realize that perhaps the majority consider Snodgrass to have been a success last season, but, sorry, I disagree. OK he puts in effort ( surely that should be normal for any player ! ) but he is slow and very predictable. We can not play a fast style of football with Snodgrass in the side. He was used consistently last season as he is SB’s type of player. Much prefer him to stay at West Ham and for SB to use Green/O’Hare etc.
