In-the-know podcaster @ExWHUemployee has claimed that Scottish winger Robert Snodgrass may leave West Ham United in January.

The 33-year-old attacker has been situated at the London Stadium since he was signed by the Irons from Hull City for £10.8m in January 2017 (per Transfermarkt).

During his time with David Moyes’ outfit, Snodgrass has made 85 appearances for the Hammers, in which he has scored 11 and provided 17 assists.

However, with his existing deal with West Ham set to expire in the summer of 2021, his future with the club is looking somewhat uncertain.

In the latest episode of The West Ham Way Podcast, @ExWHUemployee claimed that there is a chance the winger may leave the Irons during the January transfer window. (1:04:40)

Who did West Ham United face in their opening fixture of the 2020/21 Premier League season?

He said: “There’s been some talk that clubs are looking at taking Snodgrass. His contract’s up at the end of the season.

“[He may go out] possibly on loan to the end of his contract but again, there’s no concrete offer at the moment.”

TIF Thoughts on what @ExWHUemployee said about Robert Snodgrass…

As can be seen in what the in-the-know podcaster had to say, he believes there is a possibility that the Scotsman may leave the club on loan in January, however, there is nothing concrete as of yet.

What should West Ham do with Robert Snodgrass in January?

Should the 33-year-old forward leave the Irons during the winter transfer window, that would likely be a sensible decision by the club as he is seemingly no longer up to the required standard.

The winger has made four appearances in the Premier League for the Hammers so far this season and in those games, he has neither scored nor assisted a goal (per WhoScored).

His performances, too, have been below par as he has picked up a weak 6.00/10 average rating, making him the worst-performing player in West Ham’s first-team squad.

So, that would certainly suggest that it may be best for both parties if the £3.6m-rated attacker goes out on loan in January.
