West Ham ace Robert Snodgrass is set to join Celtic on loan, according to a report from the Daily Record.

The 33-year-old joined the Hammers from Hull City in January 2017 for around £10 million (The Sun).

And he has gone on to rack up 11 goals and 17 assists in 82 games in all competitions for West Ham (Transfermarkt).

Snodgrass always gives 100 per cent when he plays. But he just hasn’t got the quality needed at the very highest level.

The Scottish ace’s current contract expires in the summer of 2021. But the Hammers do have an option of extending that deal by a further 12 months.

So West Ham letting him go on loan seems slightly strange, as his value will only plummet next summer. Unless there is an obligation to buy clause inserted into the deal of course.

It would be no surprise to see Snodgrass moved on, however. David Moyes has plenty of options in the wide attacking department at the London Stadium.

And the Daily Record claims that Celtic boss Neil Lennon wants to bring the 33-year-old Scot to Parkhead.

If Snodgrass does leave east London, he will be remembered fondly at West Ham.

With only one day remaining before the transfer window slams shut, however, both the Hammers and Celtic will have to act fast.
