Claret and Hugh reported yesterday that Jeremy Ngakia could walk away from the club for free when his contract is up at the end of June. And ExWHUemployee has taken to Twitter to deliver his verdict on the situation.

The 19-year-old has really impressed for the Hammers this season.

He has only made four appearances. But wow. What a player he seems to be.

Ngakia has played in some highly pressurised situations – Liverpool home and away, a must-win game against Southampton at home and a trip to Arsenal.

And the teenager has not disappointed.

In four Premier League appearances thus far, Ngakia has racked up 12 tackles, six interceptions, 13 clearances and 13 ball recoveries (

The youngster has looked incredibly comfortable playing in the Premier League against seasoned pros. It seemed as though he had a bright future at the London Stadium.

That was until yesterday when Claret and Hugh – West Ham co-owner David Sullivan’s favourite mouthpiece, claimed that Nagkia could walk this summer after having failed to agree terms on a new deal with the east London outfit.

Hammers fans absolutely love the teenager. And they have been hugely impressed with the manner in which he has settled into the first-team.

So losing him for nothing would be a huge blow.


ExWHUemployee has confirmed that that is a very real prospect. Although he did suggest that there is always two sides to a story…

So we will just have to wait and see. As popular as the young starlet is with the fans, if he truly wants to turn his back on the club already, then maybe West Ham are better off without him.

Perhaps Ngakia should take a leaf out of Declan Rice’s book.

Patience is a virtue. And it seems as though he, or more likely his agent, doesn’t have much of that particular quality.
