Darren Randolph claim made by West Ham insiders

Darren Randolph faces a bleak future at West Ham.

Hammers boss David Moyes brought Alphonse Areola to the London Stadium on Wednesday on a season-long loan.

West Ham allegedly have an option to buy the 28-year-old for £11 million next summer (Wyn Foot).

And club insiders Claret and Hugh reckon that Randolph now faces a bleak future due to Areola’s arrival at the London Stadium.

The 34-year-old rejoined the Hammers in January 2020 for around £4 million (BBC).

He has played second fiddle to Lukasz Fabianski over the past 18 months.

And now with Areola having arrived in East London, it is hard to envisage a scenario where the 50-capped Republic of Ireland international will feature at all for David Moyes’s side.

Darren Randolph to leave West Ham?

C&H reckon that the 34-year-old is surplus to requirements at the London Stadium.

And in all fairness, that isn’t a surprise at all.

The Irishman is a decent goalkeeper but it could be argued that he actually isn’t good enough to be playing at the very highest level.

If we can get a decent fee for him this summer, moving him on will be a no-brainer.

He still has two years left to run on his contract at West Ham, so we should be able to secure a reasonable fee for his services this summer. Randolph would be a useful addition for any team in the Championship.

If the 34-year-old does leave, we wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
