According to a report from Sky Sports, Southampton have been alerted to the potential availability of West Ham right-back Ryan Fredericks.

The 27-year-old joined the Hammers on a free transfer in the summer of 2018, after his contract had expired with Fulham.

Much was expected of the pacy full-back when he swapped west London for east London.

But Fredericks has failed to impress at the London Stadium.

The English defender, who earns £40,000 per week (Spotrac), is seemingly now behind Ben Johnson in the right-back pecking order at West Ham.

Right-back’s days in east London could be numbered

And David Moyes will surely be open to selling Fredericks this summer.

 

In fact, Sky Sports claim that Southampton have been alerted to his potential availability.

Selling the former Fulham man will 100% be the right call from the Hammers.

David Moyes needs to raise funds in order to buy. So moving Fredericks on seems like an absolute no-brainer.

In many ways, the 27-year-old is so frustrating, because he possesses so much pace that he should be a real threat down West Ham’s right hand side.

But the Hammers defender never seems to use his incredible speed, and he has clearly suffered from lack of confidence this season.

And if Fredericks is sent packing to Southampton this summer, there will not be many West Ham fans who would be upset by that outcome.
