Comments from David Moyes on under-21 starlet suggest that £60k-a-week ace could leave West Ham United in the summer.
The Hammers have been really struggling in the Premier League this season but our UEFA Europa Conference League record has been perfect so far.

West Ham are in action in Europe again tonight – our second-leg clash with AEK Larnaca at the London Stadium, as we try to navigate our way through to the quarter-finals of the competition.
There will undoubtedly be changes to the lineup tonight, after our 1-1 draw with Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon.
Some of the club’s youth players have been training with the first-team leading up to the game tonight, including Freddie Potts and Levi Laing (Football.London).
However, Moyes reserved special praise for one youngster in particular during his pre-match press conference yesterday…
David Moyes praises under-21 starlet and it could spell the end of senior West Ham ace
The Hammers boss addressed the media yesterday ahead of our European clash with AEK Larnaca tonight.
And Moyes responded when asked about the recent development of talented young goalkeeper Krisztian Hegyi, as quoted by Football.London:
“I have to say, Xavi the goalkeeping coach works really hard with the goalkeepers. And he’s got a little bit of a conveyor belt of how he sees it going and he’s done a job of trying to develop the goalkeepers and he’s keen on them. It’s quite a long process to be a goalkeeper, it’s only one position and trying to get in the team. When do you put them out on loan and when are they ready etc, so it’s actually quite a job to get the goalkeepers to. I’m really pleased for Eggy, as we call him, he’s doing well, he’s a big lad and he’s improving. We’re pleased for him and it’s a big thing to get called up for your national team, you’re a young player. It’s really important.”
So could Moyes’s comments mean the end of Lukasz Fabianski at West Ham?
Fabianski, who earns £60k-a-week at the London Stadium (Salary Sport), joined the Hammers from Swansea City in the summer of 2018 for around £7 million (talkSPORT).
The 37-year-old has gone on to make 164 appearances for West Ham, conceding 211 goals and keeping 41 clean sheets in the process (Transfermarkt).
Fabianski, a 57-capped Poland international, has been a great servant for the Hammers, but his powers are definitely waning.
Alphonse Areola will undoubtedly take over the number one goalkeeping spot at the London Stadium next season.
And judging by the comments from David Moyes on Krisztian Hegyi, Fabianski’s time with West Ham may well be done by the end of the current campaign.
