David Moyes will allow Tomas Soucek to leave if West Ham receive suitable offer

David Moyes will reportedly sanction Tomas Soucek’s West Ham exit if the club receive a suitable offer this summer.

According to Claret and Hugh, agents of interested clubs have been aware of this situation for some time as the Czech Republic midfielder could be on his way out.

The Hammers boss also refused to give him a pay hike on his current deal after the first round of talks a few weeks ago.

He feels that the 27-year-old is a shadow of his old self and does not merit an increased salary.

Right decision?

Soucek had an extremely underwhelming 2021/22 Premier League campaign and he’ll be the first one to tell you about it.

He set the bar so high with his performances last season that many expected him to just be the same player this time around as well.

However, to decide to let go of him after one bad campaign does not seem quite right, given the fact that the club are already shy on midfielders.

Mark Noble has retired while Alex Kral will be returning to his club – leaving the club short on two more central midfielders.

We do not know whether Conor Coventry will be introduced to the first team next term so we’re waiting to see how this situation transpires.

Hopefully, Moyes changes his mind on Soucek and gives him another chance to prove himself.
