West Ham United insider @ExWHUemployee has claimed that Robert Snodgrass has been told that he is “likely to stay” at the club in January.
The Scottish winger has been with the Hammers since he signed for the club from Hull City for £10.8m in the winter of 2017 (per Transfermarkt).
Since moving to the London Stadium, Snodgrass has made 83 appearances for the Irons in which he has bagged 11 goals and provided 17 assists.
However, this season, the forward has made only one cameo appearance in the Premier League, during the 3-3 draw with Tottenham Hotspur.
Despite that, in the latest episode of The West Ham Way Podcast, @ExWHUemployee revealed that Snodgrass had been told that he is “likely to stay” with the Irons during the January transfer window. (51:50)
He said: “Snodgrass has been told that he’s likely to stay but, again, if someone comes in with a big offer to take his wages on to the end of his contract, they may consider it.
“I think, at the moment, they’re happy with him being backup to the wingers and the central midfielders because we don’t have a great deal of options there.”
TIF Thoughts on what @ExWHUemployee said about Robert Snodgrass…
As can be seen in what the in-the-know podcaster had to say, it seems that the Scotsman will stay at the London Stadium in January unless a “big offer” comes in for him.
What should West Ham do with Robert Snodgrass in January?
Sell him, not good enough
Keep him, he does a job
The Hammers currently have three players, including Snodgrass, who are out-and-out right-wingers in the first-team squad (per Transfermarkt).
However, David Moyes only has one natural left-winger at his disposal, so, if the attacker was to leave, then it may leave the Irons short on the flanks.
With only until the summer left on his current deal at the London Stadium, though, it will likely be an important six months from January to determine where the 33-year-old forward’s future lies.
