Dynamo Kiev president Ihor Surkis has suggested that he will gladly sign West Ham forward Andriy Yarmolenko either in January or next summer.

The Ukrainian is out of contract at the London Stadium in the summer of 2022.

After an incredibly underwhelming three year spell with West Ham following his £17 million move from Borussia Dortmund in 2018 (The Sun), it would be no surprise to see David Moyes move the 31-year-old Hammers man on in January or next summer.

Yarmolenko has suffered horrendous problems with injuries since joining West Ham.

In fact, he has started just 16 Premier League games for the Hammers in three years and three months.

Time to move on? We would say so, yes.

Dynamo Kiev president makes honest admission about West Ham ace Andriy Yarmolenko

The Ukraine international could be heading back to the club where he began he career.

“There is no such agreement, but it depends on both parties. If Andriy has a desire, I will gladly give him the opportunity to end his career at his home club. I have great respect for what he did for Dynamo, and I consider him a very decent man”.

A return to Dynamo Kiev would make a lot of sense for all parties involved.

The Ukrainian side would be getting a very good player whilst West Ham would be getting rid of someone who clearly can’t cut it at Premier League level anymore.

Yarmolenko will be 32 later this week. A move back to his first club will give him the chance to end his career in style.
