Tomas Soucek West Ham exit now looking inevitable

West Ham may be reportedly set to part ways with one of their key first-team players in Tomas Soucek this summer.

According to Claret and Hugh, Karren Brady attended a meeting along with David Moyes and the Czech midfielder’s representatives over his form and future.

The report claims that a parting of ways appears to be ‘inevitable’ this summer and things are unlikely to change before the window shuts.


The Hammers do not seem to have any coherent plan going into the transfer market and it’s proven by their handling of the Soucek situation.

Alex Kral returned to his parent club and Mark Noble retired in May – leaving the club two options shy in the middle of the park.

There seem to be no credible reports linking them to replacements for either of them with only Conor Coventry expected to be part of the first-team plans.

This is not how a club seriously running for European spots and maybe even a top-four finish should be acting in a summer window.

Before telling Soucek that they want him gone, they should rope in a like-for-like replacement and probably an upgrade on him.

After one bad season, for West Ham to be this ruthless with the 27-year-old makes very little sense and we hope that they change their mind.
