West Ham Super Fans react to update on Andriy Yarmolenko

This is part of a regular series from our West Ham Super Fans panel. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around the London Stadium. You can join in the discussion on our West Ham Zone Facebook page.

West Ham Super Fans have flocked to a post on the West Ham Zone Facebook page about Andriy Yarmolenko’s future.

According to PROFOOTBALL on Tuesday, the 32-year-old has asked the Hammers to play in their Under-23s as he looks to potentially push for a move away from the London Stadium.

The Ukrainian international’s contract is up at the end of the season, so a January move makes more sense for the Hammers.

It is clear that our Super Fans think that he needs to be moved on.

Yarmolenko’s time is up.

The former Borussia Dortmund winger has had a badly impacted time in east London due to injury and the form of others.

He is undoubtedly a quality player, there is no question about that, but this move hasn’t worked out for whatever reason.

He has actually played in most of the Europa League campaign this season and performed well, but he has barely featured in the league, and he is way down the pecking order.

The best thing for the Irons would be to get rid of him in January and use that money saved in wages to get a centre-back or a striker.

It is good to hear that Yarmolenko wants to play more games, and that would suggest that he is trying to keep himself match fit ahead of a January move.

So, we will have to see what happens in January, but clearly, our Super Fans want Yarmolenko out of there.

In other West Ham news, David Moyes has revealed his transfer plans for January.
