Hernandez unhappy as La Liga duo circle


Striker Javier Hernandez is unhappy at West Ham as Real Sociedad and Valencia circle for his signature, according to El Gol Digital

The Spanish outlet report that the in-form Mexico international is ‘dissatisfied’ at the London Stadium after struggling for game time this season under Manuel Pellegrini.

El Gol claim that Hernandez is therefore seeking an immediate exit in the January transfer window, with Sociedad and Valencia ready to reignite their summer interest.

Hernandez was the hero for the Hammers on Saturday as they beat Newcastle 3-0 at St. James’ Park.

Good move for West Ham?


Hernandez may be struggling for minutes under Pellegrini but the experienced striker is a vital squad member, as illustrated by his display on Saturday against the Magpies.

The 30-year-old was handed a rare start by Pellegrini and proved his worth with a brace which saw the Hammers to a comfortable and important win over Newcastle.

Letting him go in January would be a bad move, unless they were to secure a quality replacement, which is unlikely in the mid-season window.

Likely to happen?

Also no.

West Ham will be well aware of Hernandez’s value to them, and will be unwilling to let him leave in the middle of the season.

Unless Sociedad or Valencia were to make an outrageous offer for the 30-year-old, then you would think this one is unlikely to happen.
