West Ham United insider ExWHUemployee has claimed that the club will try to ‘terminate’ the loan moves of Frederik Alves and Conor Coventry.

At the beginning of the season, Sunderland managed to sign Alves on a season-long loan deal. Similarly, Coventry went to spend the current campaign with Peterborough United.

However, now in January, it looks as though both players may find their temporary moves cut short. Indeed, while talking about the duo on The West Ham Way podcast, Ex stated that West Ham are currently holding talks with the intention of bringing them back to the club immediately.

Ex also mentioned Huddersfield loanee Mipo Odubeko as a third player the Hammers would look to bring back. Since making the comments, he had already been proven true with that part of the claim, as the youngster is now officially set to return to east London. 

He said: “All three players are going to be recalled by West Ham, I think, with talks already going – that’s the first bit of news.

“Talks are going on with all three to try and get them back to the club this week to terminate their loan deals at Sunderland with Alves, Peterborough with Coventry and Huddersfield with Odubeko to terminate those deals, letting them come back for January, letting them fight for their place, and then see whether we do another loan deal for them at the end of the window.”

TIF Thoughts on West Ham’s loanees…

During his time at Sunderland so far, Alves has spent a lot of time on the bench. Indeed, he has been an unused substitute in 16 of the Black Cats’ 26 League One games, making just three appearances in the division.

In the Championship, Coventry has managed to play 428 minutes spread across 12 appearances – but has still spent a lot of time sitting on the bench, too (via Transfermarkt).

It seems more than likely that this lack of regular game time will be a just cause for West Ham to recall these two youngsters. Whether or not they will be reintegrated into the club’s squad or shipped out on loan to a new team in January will remain to be seen.
