Eintracht and @WestHamUtd have agreed terms for the transfer of @HallerSeb. Haller has now been cleared to undergo a medical in London. If all goes to plan then Haller will sign with the Hammers. #SGE

that is what it says on their official twitter account. #COYI.

Just seen a report that another PL team[manU] ready to make late bid anyone has any news on this?

Hiya john I'm 95% sure it's UTD or EVERTON. COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2019 13:26:10
Inter Milan and a CHAMPIONS LEAGUE team have shown interest. My guess would be Napoli or Lille/ Lyon.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2019 14:13:07
I hope their Twitter post didn't signal some other clubs could just be the papers making rubbish up as usual easy clicks for them.

GET HIM SIGNED QUICK.

16 Jul 2019 14:44:26
To be fair, would be really surprised if anyone could hijack it at this stage.

Any news Ed on an unamed premier league team trying to hijack west hams transfer of HALLER. COYI.

{Ed002's Note - I know nothing of a PL side.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2019 13:50:37
Inter and Dortmund both interested in late bids apparently.

Any thoughts on their interest Ed and ability to match our offer to both club and player?

Assumedly Frankfurt put their Twitter message out to alert other clubs that it was now or never?

{Ed002's Note - He has been seen as an option for Dortmund - but not first choice.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2019 16:14:07
You think it will go through ed?

{Ed002's Note - There has to be a great chance of signing him - then maybe look at Maupay.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2019 17:25:38
Guessing it would be a bit like Liverpool debating going for Callum Wilson or a more guaranteed and high profile finished article of a player.

Thanks ed.

As mentioned a couple of days ago, by all accounts he has some sort of clause that allows a CL team to get him for an unspecified fee. Again CL team really only means England, Spain, Italy, France, Germany so 15 or so clubs of which several won’t have space so a concern but if he does sign we really need the team as a whole to push forward so players don’t want to leave. As someone said yesterday, would be sad if players didn’t have ambition to play CL, but while CL is probably a way off yet, we need to players to be feeling they have the players around them to push the club forward.

sky sports reporting haller is on route to london for a medical.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

16 Jul 2019 10:00:35
In their message, the Bundesliga club said:

"Eintracht and West Ham have agreed on transfer terms regarding Sebastien Haller.

As a result, Haller has clearance to complete the medical exam in London.

Should this take a positive course, Haller will join the Hammers. "

I am so hoping this is true!

Me to I'm a big fan as u guys have guessed been wanting him here for a few seasons hope nothing hampers this deal.

Byram gone for less than a mil, is great business for norwich . Good luck to him.

its absolutely pathetic business from West Ham! we sell a 25yr old English PML player to another PML team for 750k! . you couldn´t buy a 2nd division player for that! . who negotiates these deals! . ridiculous!

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Jul 2019 10:02:50
It doesn’t sound good, but he was in the last year of his contract on £30k a week and WH needed to free up his wages. I’ve read that there are conditions written in so presumably there’s a hefty sell on clause.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2019 12:58:57
C&H reporting this morning:


English-speaking Haller has made up his mind that a move to the Premier League is the next stage of his career and a highly placed source inside the club have told ClaretandHugh they consider the chances now better than 50/ 50.

We were told by e mail: “The player really wants to come to West Ham – he has made that clear to us so we have to believe this is now possible. ”

Hammering out a deal with the German outfit may be a little more problematical as we understand Frankfurt are looking for closer to £42 million for the player plus various add ons which would include sell on percentages.

And man utd are now sniffing. Best we get deal done quickly cause this striker saga is dragging on a bit.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2019 19:56:53
If Man U are in fact in for him and he knows that then this will drag on and on until Man play their hand.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2019 08:33:48
Various sources coming out now saying this is very close/ done.

All feels quite the coup if we get it over the line!

If so be interesting to see who the second striker to try and bring in is.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 10:16:36
Ed is there any chance of an update on the striker search? We're linked with everyone in Europe at the moment but what's the most realistic outcome?

{Ed002's Note - I think West Ham need two from:
Moussa Marega (S) looking for a move to the PL with interest from Wolves, West Ham and Leicester - interest of Aston Villa has gone after signing Wesley. This would be the one to push for.
Neal Maupay (S) WHU have made an enquiry with Brentford – could be a shrewd buy.
Salomon Rondon (S) Need to push now given the uncertainty at Newcastle.
Borja Iglesias (S) watched by WH playing for Espanyol and seen as an option to Gomez - but Everton are keen
Sebastien Haller (S) Haller has made no secret of his desire for Champions League football and there would be a fear he could soon head out when the opportunity arises.

And the others:
Maxi Gomez (S) Opted for Valencia.
Callum Wilson (S) Opted to stay at Bournemouth.
Duvan Zapata (S) - the player was not keen on a move to West Ham in January and the €50M asking price has already scared off Newcastle and Inter Milan - WHU could return but I doubt he would be viable as there is serious interest from a Champions League club. Seems very unlikely.
Aleksandar Mitrovic (S) was a realistic target and very much the Andy Carroll type player - but there is a lot of competition - and WHU did not take the time to talk with Fulham as other clubs are already doing so - he will head elsewhere or opt to stay at Fulham with a one year get out at a low price in case there is no promotion.
Florian Aye (S) makes little sense.
Edin Dzeko (S) Heading elsewhere.
Max Kruse (S) Was watched by West Ham but heading elsewhere.
Dario Benedetto (S) is a Plan C for Roma and RBL and suggested WHU move makes no sense given his goals have dried up, his injuries over the past couple of years and he will only be able to get a one year Tier 5 work permit initially.
Marion Balotelli (S) Wants a return to Italy but discussions with three clubs ended over wage demands.}

Any further update on Andrea Belotti?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of WH interest, sorry.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2019 12:43:23
Thanks for the updates.

Failing serious interest from elsewhere, if Haller came to us because he thought we might be a useful stepping stone, I’d be more than happy. As a club, we need to get higher quality players in our squad to push on and a standard trigger clause could be placed in any contract to encourage him to come on board.

The way I see it, we are more likely to challenge for Europe with better quality players in the side and, if we do qualify, there is a better chance that these type of players would stay.

{Ed002's Note - You cannot start adding (I assume you mean) termination clauses to contracts - it is fraught with issues, costs money and can backfire easily. I would expect the player might demand a low termination clause from a CL team.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2019 13:25:59
Thanks Ed.

In fairness any young player of talent we sign should want to play Champions League. If not question their aspirations!

Don't see that as not a good reason, and we'd get a good return and be doing well if it came about.

Getting Haller + Rondon in would pretty much complete our squad as of now.

{Ed002's Note - They are very similar players.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2019 16:18:28
I don't see any issue with that if that style of player is what the manager sees as needing: one first choice and one as backup, with then Hernandez, Antonio and Silva providing flexibility and variation.

A bigger issue is if you sign Haller, build a way of playing, he gets injured, and you need to restyle completely because you only have a totally different player to cover them available to come in.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2019 18:49:14
Rondo is joining benetez in china. COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jul 2019 08:25:34
According to Football London Today online, we are about to offer massive pay rise and fee to BRENFORD for Neal Maupay? 🤭🤭 Anyone know much about him, apparently Villa and other clubs sniffing around him?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

14 Jul 2019 10:48:47
Just YouTubed him. He’s 5’7”.

I’d sum him up as Chicha-like poacher with more energy. You have to remember though, that all the video is against Championship defences.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jul 2019 12:13:53
Maupay along with haller I'd be happy but not as our main summer striker.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jul 2019 14:35:40
Hope we get haller just read insider saying man utd could hijack our deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jul 2019 21:45:30
And Frankfurt supposedly haven’t agreed the fee and want to keep Haller and offer him higher salary. Think we will be looking in the bargain bin soon.

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Jul 2019 23:58:08
I will say now that if HALLER joins us i'd be staggered frankfurt don't want to sell and UTD are sniffing so on to other targets that will get us excited drag on and no signature at the end typical west ham transfer buisness i'm afraid. COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2019 00:35:56
Don’t think Utd are a worry unless someone pays silly money for Lukaku.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2019 18:53:07
If and a big IF we sign MAUPAY and HALLER I'd be ecstatic then a holding midfielder to play with RICE as no disrespect but NOBLE and SNODGRASS do not close down anywhere near quick enough for the demands of the premier league and then we need a L/ B and if WILSHIRE can stay fit things will look very good at WEST HAM . COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jul 2019 09:17:26
It appears we've made contact with Haller and Rondon, and to throw a spanner in the works we've been offered Marega! It could only happen to us. Buying all 3 would cost approximately £90m. 1 we will buy, 2 possibly, all 3 unlikely. Personally I'd go for Marega and Rondon, both tried and trusted, plus the pair would cost approximately the same as Haller, so we get 2 for 1.What does everyone else feel?

Believable0 Unbelievable2

13 Jul 2019 09:55:37
Haller and Rondon.
Rondon knows league and Haller is best striker from this trio.

Agree3 Disagree0

13 Jul 2019 10:58:09
Iagree with Tulen, Haller can take us to the next level. Rondon has Prem. experience.
Haller and Rondon have Pace and strength ideal for the Premiership.
Lets hope we can pull it off.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Jul 2019 11:17:53
Marega and haller awesome.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jul 2019 12:01:58
To many links and speculation as normal . I will wait and believe it when I see one or more of them in the shirt or signing on the dotted line.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jul 2019 12:47:25
Having looked at the stats over the last few weeks it would be Seb Haller and Moisa Marega for me Haller played outstanding last 2 seasons at Frankfurt as part of an attacking 3 and Marega has an outstanding return per game would remind me of a Hartson and Kitspn partnership

Not so excited about Rondon but he does have Premier experience - all 3 would be amazing.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jul 2019 13:21:58
If haller is to sign then for my best guess look for a free agent to come in as the number 2 striker, don't Wright off Mario for that slot, you just never know.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jul 2019 21:46:13
Don’t think Haller will sign - maybe a pessimist but don’t see it happening.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jul 2019 23:59:34
Totally agree Sdl. COYI.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 15:51:02
L’Equipe report about Haller:

“The French outlet claim that he has had a change of heart with West Ham now set to enter discussions over personal terms after settling on a fee with Frankfurt. ”.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

12 Jul 2019 16:15:45
Unless he's in london ( or china ) and its official I won't believe it markro, too much media hype over lots of players and west ham at the moment, ed put us out of our misery is this a no chance deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 17:08:50
But stories suggest he wants a release clause that allows him to leave if a bigger club comes in for him - not sure how that gets structured but not ideal.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 18:04:39
Will he have a pre written list of agreed bigger clubs lol release cause is normally a monie thing g not a wish list.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 18:15:05
I’ve never heard of a contract including clauses about “bigger clubs” - maybe it might state “Champions League” or “European Competition. ” Otherwise a standard trigger amount is the usual way forward. Sign him up for €40m and lob a €100m release Claus in. Job done.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 18:36:24
All presumption and pue in the sky at the moment but it would be best part of 100m markro, if he was on say a 5 yr contract at 100k pw, still all sounds like fairy dust to me.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 18:38:40
*clause (though the whole thing may have something Santa about it all!

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 18:57:57
Naughty elfs in there also lol don't mention xmas! That would mean jan transfers would be on the horizon. noooooooooooo.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 20:49:04
So we are a feeder for HALLER if he warms to the premier league I know what I'd do and the only way is put €150 million on that release clause other clubs do, what's good for barcelona with MESSI apparent €650 million release clause I know he ain't Messi but what's good for goose well you know what I mean. COYI.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 21:31:12
But sadly.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 22:55:09
We will end up with no-one of note the way this is going. Would have thought when they released people they had more of a plan than get Gomez.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jul 2019 08:46:29
I have no idea what Haller is like, I would take the consensus of opinion that he’d be a great signing for us, unless it looks almost nailed on as rumours suggest, we are desperate for a target man upfront and Hope plan B is in place if not? We need a big strong proven battler and scorer up front, doesn’t have to be somebody unobtainable that is a dream, just a realistic prospect for us. I see no problem with age within reason for a target man, maximum say 30 as that still gives another couple of years providing no serious injury problems! I think it’s more important to have slightly younger players elsewhere apart from GK. ⚒⚒⚒.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jul 2019 18:06:41
I'm just waiting for either EVERTON, SPURS, or NEWCASTLE to hijack tge HALLER move as it's normally one of them mainly EVERTON so please hurry up if we are going to get this deal over the line otherwise we can only blame ourselves for making our business public again I understand it's difficult to keep quiet on transfers but not impossible. COYI.

On stand by to come I think is nearer the mark and also to other places I'd bet.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 12:24:26
I suggest Hardcore, that WH representatives pop to Boots and buy a Black and Blue inked pen and get straight to the City Airport.

While they are doing that book a medical hospital where ever Hallers is right now in the World and fly the medical team out.

If they want £40m give them what they want and offer Hallers and his family free day passes to Peter Pans Playground in Southend, with as much Jellied Eels they can eat until his contract ends.

This guy is a top top players and in my view is a game changer for us.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 13:38:48
Whilst there’s plenty of scelticism out there, I am also reading plenty of reports confirming an on-going interest in Haller.

His YouTube videos:

Scores with head and both feet
Good close control and hold up play
Excellent vision for space for himself and for others
Great eye for a killer pass
Decent pace

Would be a fantastic acquisition.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 13:58:43
i don't live far from city airport warrington mate ill pop dow after work with a pen haha.

I'm so excited this may come off I've been championing him for a long time.

12 Jul 2019 17:09:37
If it happens would be well pleased but not holding my breath now that our interest is in the public domain. we are well light up front costa/ Higuain costa all day long for me. we still to move some fringe players on. but I trust no n back room staff no what it takes to step up to the 1 st team
Think we will slowly see Johnson intergrated into the team.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 12:10:07
Ed. previously you've stated this deal won't happen. Is that still the case, or to your knowledge are our chances improving here?

{Ed002's Note - as far as I know - the lack of CL football would end the chance of a deal.}

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 13:03:04
It's all hot air at the moment I'd guess, ed is there truth in interest in him from man u? Or again all speculation? If they are in the mix them our odds are going to very long in getting his signature.

{Ed002's Note - I don’t think the issue of CL football has gone away Jason.}

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 20:51:12
Is it true ED we have asked WILLIE MCKAY super agent out of retirement to try and broker the deal for HALLER I know he's been used by west ham before. COYI.

{Ed002's Note - He is not a registered agent and has some really serious fraud charges to face.}
