West Ham have numerous players represented by David Sullivan’s favoured agent Will Salthouse.
The relationship between the agent and the Hammers co-owner has angered the club’s fans in the past.
West Ham have favoured deals to sign players represented by Salthouse whilst missing out on others who would have perhaps been better for the job at the London Stadium.
They haven’t all been bad signings though!
Michail Antonio, Aaron Cresswell and Craig Dawson are all clients of Salthouse.
Said Benrahma has been represented by the Unique Sports Management chief in the past as well, including when he moved from Brentford to West Ham.
Two players represented by Will Salthouse who West Ham should sell
There are a couple of players who we think should be moved on in January.
Darren Randolph and Ryan Fredericks are under the Unique Sports Management umbrella.
Fredericks is out of contract in the summer of 2022 whilst Randolph’s deal expires one year later.
Moyes should be trying to shift both players in January.
West Ham have Alphonse Areola and Lukasz Fabianski in the goalkeeping department with Nathan Trott, Joseph Anang and Krisztian Hegyi all coming through the ranks at the London Stadium.
There is no need for Randolph any more.
Meanwhile, Fredericks has been decent at times this season but with Vladimir Coufal and the recent emergence of Ben Johnson, the 29-year-old full-back is no longer required.
Especially with Harrison Ashby lighting it up for the under-23s as well.
It sounds ruthless and perhaps slightly harsh but there is no room for sentiment in the Premier League.
As West Ham continue our development as a football club and more and more top-class players arrive at the London Stadium, it will be vital for Moyes to move on the deadwood.
Randolph and Fredericks certainly fit into that category.
And selling both of them in January would be a wise move from the Hammers.
