So West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic has handed in another transfer request, according to Sky Sports News.
Nothing new there.
Hammers fans will be used to the Austrian’s antics, after he angled for a move away from the club in January.
What will annoy the West Ham faithful, however, is how the 30-year-old has gone back on his words after signing a new contract in January.
Arnautovic posted this to his Instagram account:

The change in heart over the course of six months really is quite something from the Hammers hitman.
His form drastically dipped after the turn of the new year. And it could be argued that West Ham should just move him on now.
Arnautovic has proven that he has no loyalty whatsoever towards the east London club.
And should West Ham receive any kind of decent offer, they should not hesitate to send him packing.
West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini will be better off signing someone who wants to play for the football club, rather than persist with the troublesome 30-year-old.
He quite clearly doesn’t want to stay in east London, so the Chilean must now move him on.
Words are cheap, but actions require substance, and following the Austrian’s hollow promises in January, it seems as though he is severely lacking in the latter.
