Andriy Yarmolenko and Ryan Fredericks won't be offered new deals at West Ham

West Ham duo Andriy Yarmolenko and Ryan Fredericks look set to leave the club with no new deal on the horizon, according to ExWHUEmployee.

Both players see their current deals at the London Stadium expire at the end of this season and will need to put pen to paper on a new contract if they are to stay for future years.

West Ham though aren’t likely to offer them that opportunity with neither player being a key component in David Moyes’ first team this season.

ExWHUEmployee believes the duo are almost certain to leave the club now after no talks have taken place between the two parties.

“There’s a few players that they want to sort of finalise, but I get the impression that Fredericks and Yarmolenko, at this point, are almost certain to go, but we shall see, with time,” he said on the West Ham Way podcast.

It’s an intriguing decision from the club, if what ExWHUEmployee is reporting is correct, but one that won’t cause too many sleepless nights.

Fredericks hasn’t done much to suggest he is worthy of a new deal having been usurped in the pecking order by Ben Johnson behind Czech Republic international Vladimir Coufal at right-back.

His decision is probably an easier one to make but Yramolenko is starting to hit a purple patch at the London stadium.

Two crucial goals in recent weeks have almost saved the Irons’ season entirely and he’s done all of this while his homeland of Ukraine is under immense stress due to the invasion from Russia.

Someone with that kind of resilience surely has a place at the club for another year or two despite being 32 years of age.

In other West Ham news, Paul Ince thinks this Hammers star can become a “very special player” if he adds one thing to his game.
