ExWHUemployee has claimed that West Ham boss David Moyes wants to sign Manchester City defender John Stones this summer. And some West Ham fans have erupted in excitement on Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
Moyes needs to bolster his defensive ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
The Scot should be prioritising the additions of a new centre-back and right-back before the start of next season.
And with that in mind, Manchester City ace John Stones would be ideal, given the fact that he can play at both centre-back and right-back.
The Sun reported at the start of this month that the Hammers were ready to bid £20 million for Stones.
That obviously hasn’t happened yet, but following Ex’s comments last night, it certainly seems like a real possibility that the 39-capped England international could be reunited with Moyes this summer.
Even if that is only on loan.
Stones – a two-time Premier League winner played just 16 league games for Pep Guardiola last season. In those outings, he has averaged one tackle, 0.6 interceptions and 1.9 clearances per game (Who Scored).
He has clearly fallen out of favour at the Etihad. A move to West Ham might just help him resurrect his stalling career.
And some Hammers fans have reacted on Twitter to Ex’s claim suggesting that Moyes wants to bring Stones, 26, to the London Stadium this summer…
OMG this would be such a good signing. pls redeem yourself and make it happen Sully

Not seen enough of Duffy but Stones would be great signing- yes makes a mistake now and then, and fans would need to accept that, but I think he would improve us and link well with Rice. Get the deal done early West Ham!

Moyes brought him to Everton and then made city pay 50m for him so maybe we could get that John stones back.. loan with a view to buy for me

That would be superb he’s in the mould of Rio, but unfortunately can’t see it. He would be great with Oggy but think couldnt have him with Issa. Would be brilliant as it’s a big drop from City Champs LG etc but where else does go? Changed me mind RIGHT HERE’S OURS COYI

V expensive but I get the impression he’s a real pro and would give 110%
