West Ham are interested in signing Norwich City midfielder Kenny McLean according to a report from the Sun, and some Canaries fans reacted on Twitter to the speculation.
The Hammers are very short in central midfield. They have agreed a deal to sign Tomas Soucek on loan from Slavia Prague with an option to buy (Daily Mail).
But it could be argued that David Moyes still needs to bolster his midfield ranks even further still.
The Sun claims that West Ham could make a late £10 million bid for Norwich City’s Kenny McLean.
Hammers fans surely won’t be excited by the rumours
The 28-year-old Scot has been decent for Norwich this season, but he has hardly set the world alight.
In 23 Premier League games, McLean has racked up just one goal and one assist (Transfermarkt).
McLean is a solid passer, however, with a pass completion rate of 79.3% in 23 league games this season. Although he only averaged 0.7 passes per game in those outings (Who Scored).
In truth, the Norwich man hasn’t got anything extra special about him, despite being a very solid player.
And some Canaries fans took to Twitter, urging their club to sell the midfielder to West Ham…
Let him go and give Vrancic a run.

Lol they can have him. Love Kenny but no a 10 million player

Really like McClean but for 10 mil? Could get a young high quality CB for that money, and alongside Tettey I’m sure Vrancic can do a job.
