Reliable West Ham United insider ExWHUemployee has been discussing the situation surrounding Sebastien Haller ahead of a crucial week for the club.

West Ham face Burnley on Wednesday night before a trip to basement side Norwich on Saturday.

If West Ham secure two wins they would be more or less safe from relegation with three games to spare.

All the talk ahead of the Burnley is whether record signing Haller will be available for the Hammers.

Haller conspiracies swirl after West Ham reported to FIFA

The Frenchman has missed all four games since the restart through injury.

Conspiracy theories have been rife about Haller. The £45million signing has endured a difficult debut season at West Ham.

But he was excellent in the win over Southampton and unlucky not to score against Arsenal before the break.

Haller was also said to have been looking very sharp in friendlies against QPR and Crystal Palace before the season resumption.

Some fans believe Haller has not featured as the club plan to sell him.

Others have suggested Haller’s next appearance – his 30th of the season – will trigger another payment in the deal with Eintracht Frankfurt.

The fact West Ham were reported to FIFA last week for non-payment of the latest instalment to Frankfurt only adds fuel to the conspiracy theories (Sky Sports).

Insider bites back after being labelled a fraud over Haller

Reports had suggested Haller would be fit to face Spurs and the same ahead of Chelsea. So when he missed those games, and the draw at Newcastle, speculation intensified.

Anonymous Twitter and podcast personality ExWHUemployee has insisted all along that Haller is genuinely injured.

But he admitted last night that not even David Moyes or Haller himself knows at this stage whether he will be fit to return.

Ex has proven himself an extremely reliable source of inside information from West Ham.


Some supporters have accused him of being a fraud over the lack of clarity on Haller.

Ex has defended his record and pointed out that if Moyes and Haller do not know for certain when the striker will return how should he?

‘A strong chance he will be on bench for Burnley’

“I am not promising but he has been in training now,” ExWHUemployee said on Twitter.

“But obviously not knowing whether he will make Burnley does not make me a fraud lol. Moyes and Haller do not know at this point…

“I said he “should” be (fit for Spurs) and just to point out that was two weeks ago!!! Both Moyes and Haller are unsure when he returns so how do you expect me to know exactly?

“Even though Moyes is unsure if Haller will make it for Burnley and Haller is unsure if he will make Burnley because I am also unsure, I am a fraud….ladies and gentlemen football twitter for you.

“He has been out for two weeks mate. The amount of games is making people lose track. He trained today (Monday). Out of interest if he does make the bench/play against Burnley or Norwich what are people going to say then?

“He played and scored in both. What would have been the sensible thing for the club to do though if they didn’t want to play him is announce he had picked up an injury in one of those games…

He added on Twitter: “There is a strong chance he could be on the bench for Burnley and an even stronger chance he could be available for Norwich.”
