Report: Andriy Yarmolenko staying at West Ham despite January rumours

Rumours have appeared in Turkey suggesting that West Ham United forward Andriy Yarmolenko could move to Fenerbahce.

It is suggested that the Ukrainian winger could seal a loan switch, something which appears unlikely at the London Stadium.

Fenerbahce have been linked with a number of Hammers players, including Manuel Lanzini who has also stayed around.

Claret and Hugh have reported that Yarmolenko is going nowhere.

It is suggested on their website that the Turkish club would most likely struggle to match his £115,000-per-week wages.

West Ham are not interested in allowing the ageing winger to leave the club in any sort of deal during the January window, never mind just on loan.

David Moyes appears to have found the right blend of youth and experience at the London Stadium, with Yarmolenko a frequent occurrence off the bench.

There is no need for the Hammers to sell any of their players in the winter window.

Yarmolenko has proved his worth this season, and the only reason the Irons would sanction his exit was if they needed more funds to secure a bigger target.

A summer exit would make more sense, as Said Benrahma will have had a full season of Premier League football behind him and pushed the Ukrainian further down the pecking order.

The 31-year-old has come off the bench in five Premier League games so far this season and still has a big part to play at the London Stadium.
