West Ham United deal for Nayef Aguerd confirmed, no Newcastle hijack - ExWHUemployee

West Ham United have confirmed the deal to sign Nayef Aguerd on Friday, according to ExWHUemployee.

The reliable source has reported that there can be no late Newcastle hijack now with things too far down the line despite fears starting to grow through the week.

It is shared that a few final details need to be ironed out and then the Hammers will announce the signing on midday of Monday afternoon [20 June].

Writing on the official West Ham Way Patreon page, Ex has confirmed that the deal is set to go through and everything has been completed.

“We are there,” he wrote. “I have just got the confirmation that the deal is done for Moroccan Defender Aguerd and there can be no late Newcastle intervention at this point.

“A few things to finalise but the club will be announcing the deal at midday on Monday if all goes to plan.”

This is the news that we were all waiting for.

When Ex confirms it is done, that is when you know you can breathe and get on with your weekend.

Newcastle were trying their best it seems to get one over one the Irons, but you need more than money to do just that, with European football looking to have helped us yet again.

With that deal set to be announced on Monday, it is time to get going again and target more signings, with one nowhere near being enough right now.

The depth of the squad is nowhere near good enough, and it was a miracle we got through the 2021-22 season at times, so this is a brilliant start to our business.

Aguerd will help the defence massively, and there will now be loads of time to strengthen in the midfield and the final third to reward David Moyes for everything he has done.

In other West Ham United news, the Irons have been offered the chance to sign this £12.8million goal machine after his club was relegated.
