West Ham United v Olympique Lyon: Quarter Final Leg One - UEFA Europa League


Opinion: West Ham absolutely must sell 50-capped international this summer

West Ham United absolutely have to sell Darren Randolph in the summer transfer window.

The 35-year-old Hammers goalkeeper is still under contract at the London Stadium until the summer of 2023.

He’s about as useful to us as a chocolate teapot at the moment though.

On top of that, we have talented young goalkeepers Nathan Trott, Joseph Anang and Krisztián Hegyi coming through the ranks at the club.

West Ham need to sell Darren Randolph this summer

Randolph rejoined the Hammers from Middlesbrough in January 2020 for around £4 million (BBC).

The 35-year-old earns around £40k-a-week at the London Stadium according to Spotrac.

That’s just wasted money as far as I’m concerned.

The 50-capped Republic of Ireland international will surely not play one minute of football next season unless with have an unbelievably bad goalkeeping injury crisis.

Randolph has been a decent goalkeeper throughout the years but he is just not good enough to be playing Premier League football.

That says to me that he shouldn’t be anywhere near the West Ham United first-team squad.

The Hammers stopper is 35 now, and doesn’t possess the athleticism nor the technical ability needed to be playing his trade at the very highest level. A move to a Championship club would be perfect for him in the summer transfer window.

And West Ham absolutely have to sell Darren Randolph as soon as possible this summer in order to free up some funds fore wages.

Even if that means releasing him from his contract early.
