West Ham were very good today away at Southampton, but Albian Ajeti will be far from happy.

The Hammers earned a valuable three points and they will now be looking to kick on into the new year.

It wasn’t a good day for everyone involved with West Ham, however.

Albian Ajeti has endured a disastrous start to his Hammers career. And he received another big snub from Manuel Pellegrini today.

It would not be an exaggeration to day that it could, in fact, be the final nail in his coffin as far as his West Ham career is concerned.

 

With the east London outfit leading 1-0, Pellegrini chose to bring Colombian flop Carlos Sanchez on in place of Sebastien Haller in the 79th minute, despite the fact that two strikers up top had caused the Saints problems all game.

The 22-year-old joined West Ham from FC Basel for £8 million in the summer (BBC). According to Claret and Hugh, however, the Hammers are already trying to move him on in January.

And after being overlooked by Pellegrini yet again today, his potential exit from the club now seems more likely than ever.
