According to a report from Claret and Hugh, West Ham should have no problems extending Tomas Soucek’s current loan deal beyond June 30th.

The Hammers signed the 25-capped Czech international on loan from Slavia Prague in January, and he made an instant impact at the club.

The 25-year-old has only played four Premier League games, however, due to the recent coronavirus enforced break from action.

And Soucek has really impressed.

In four Premier League games, the 25-year-old has racked up eight tackles, eight interceptions, 12 clearances and 10 ball recoveries. He has also won 23 individual duals and 13 aerial battles (premierleague.com).

The Czech’s athleticism, energy and determination has added so much to the way in which the Hammers play.

 

Signing him permanently will be crucial for West Ham, as they look to make progress next season.

And that will happen if the Hammers avoid relegation, according to a report from the Guardian.

But what will happen to Soucek’s loan deal (currently due to expire on June 30th), if the Premier League campaign ends up running into July or even August?

Claret and Hugh claims that Soucek, his representatives, Slavia Prague and West Ham are all happy in principle to extend the terms of the loan to complete the season.

That is great news for the east London outfit. And will undoubtedly be a much needed boost for the Hammers fans.
