‘Moyes feels he is getting number one target and a good lad’

“It appears that some of the details that needed sorting out have been and the club now believe that they can get the medical completed within the next 24 hours,” ExWHUemployee said on The West Ham Way Patreon site.

“There are a few steps to go plus obvious medical. The deal is now more advanced than the Milenkovic one ever was. Let’s hope we finally get an outfield deal over the line…

“I have been told that not only does Moyes feel he is securing his number one target, a top quality centre back but also a very good lad who will settle into the changing room superbly and be part of the great team spirit that has been created.”
