According to club insiders Claret and Hugh, Winston Reid faces a bleak future at West Ham United.
The Hammers will allegedly try to move the experienced Kiwi on in the summer.
Reid joined West Ham from FC Midtjylland in the summer of 2010 for around £5 million (Eurosport).
The 32-year-old instantly endeared himself to the Hammers faithful.
Reid, who earns £65k-a-week according to Football League FC, is West Ham’s second longest serving player behind Mark Noble.
He has experienced terrible problems with injuries over the past three years and has spent the past 12 months away from the London Stadium on loan with Sporting Kansas City and now Brentford.
West Ham looking to loan Winston Reid out again next season insider claims
It now seems as though the centre-back’s time at the London Stadium could be coming to an end.
Claret and Hugh claims that West Ham will be looking to loan Reid out once again next season.
The 25-capped New Zealand international will have just two years remaining on his current contract in the summer.
It would be a shame to lose such an experienced head at the London Stadium.
Sentiment aside, however, getting Reid off the books in the summer may well be the right call, whether that be on loan or on a permanent deal.
One thing is for certain though, the 32-year-old should be given a testimonial by the club. That 100 per cent needs to happen.
