West Ham man Andriy Yarmolenko is unlikely to leave the club for a move to Turkey

West Ham man Andriy Yarmolenko is unlikely to depart the London Stadium for a move to Turkey this month, according to a report from Claret & Hugh.

The 31-year-old is one of the highest earners at the Irons but has only played four minutes so far this season and only made 21 appearances last season for the first team.

The transfer window in Turkey is still open, but it doesn’t appear as if the Hammers will be able to offload Yarmolenko’s wages.

West Ham are stuck with Yarmolenko.

The Ukrainian international arrived at the London Stadium from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2018.

He made a good start with two goals very early into his career, but then he suffered a bad injury and has really struggled for regular game time since.

However, given that he earns over £100,000 per week, you would have thought that the Irons would be keen to get rid of him if he isn’t contributing for the first team [Spotrac].

There are quite a few big teams in Turkey who have had a reputation for taking Premier League players; however, it appears as if Yarmolenko will not be moving to Turkey any time soon.

Either way, his contract expires at the end of the season, so you would have thought that Yarmolenko’s West Ham career is approaching its end, even if he doesn’t move to Turkey.

In other West Ham news, Danny Murphy is stunned that one player didn’t join the club.
