Sullivan confidant shares James Ward-Prowse twist, claims Scott McTominay to West Ham transfer is back on

Sean Whetstone – a reporter with very close contacts to Hammers owner David Sullivan, has shared a big twist regarding our pursuit of Ward-Prowse.

Whetstone tweeted:

I actually think that both players would be really strong additions to Moyes’s ranks.

McTominay is vastly experienced in playing huge games for one of the biggest clubs in world football, and his tenacity and aggression in central midfield would add so much to the way in which we play.

Meanwhile, Ward-Prowse’s set-piece ability, superb technique and leadership skills would be crucial for West Ham as well.

As long as we get one of the two players mentioned signed before the transfer window closes then I’ll be a happy man.
