According to a report from Claret and Hugh, Carlos Sanchez could be kept on beyond June 30th, when his contract is scheduled to expire.

The 34-year-old has been widely tipped to leave the Hammers this summer.

According to a report from Football.London, he is almost certain to leave West Ham at the end of this season.

The 34-year-old joined the east London outfit in the summer of 2018, for a fee believed to be worth €4.5 million (£4.1 million), according to Viola Nation.

But he has been an absolute disaster for West Ham.


The Colombia international has gone on to make 17 appearances for West Ham. And he has failed to register either a goal or an assist (Transfermarkt).

In 13 Premier League appearances for West Ham, the former Aston Villa man has racked up just five tackles and three interceptions. His tackle success rate is just 60%, and he has won less than 50% of his individual duals against opposing players (

Sanchez is clearly not good enough for the Premier League. And the sooner that the Hammers get rid of him the better.

Claret and Hugh claims that the South American could be kept on at West Ham past the end of June, however.

The recent global pandemic has affected sports worldwide. And we are unsure as to when Premier League action will resume.

But it could be argued that the Hammers would be better off just paying Sanchez up to the end of his deal and then releasing him. He has absolutely nothing to offer the east London outfit.

That may sound harsh, but surely every West Ham fan will agree with the sentiment.
