According to a report from the Guardian, West Ham will try to offload Roberto in January, with a loan move to Turkey being mooted.

The 33-year-old joined the Hammers on a free transfer in the summer. He signed a two-year deal with West Ham and is on around £30,000 per week, according to Claret and Hugh.

Roberto has been nothing short of a disaster since filling on for Lukasz Fabianski at the end of September. He conceded 14 goals in just six games and his calamitous displays proved to be really costly for the Hammers.

He was finally dropped by Manuel Pellegrini for last weekend’s trip to Chelsea. And he surely will never play for West Ham again.

According to the Guardian, the Hammers are actively looking to sell Roberto.

The British newspaper claims that West Ham accept that they will struggle to fetch a fee for the goalkeeper, and are prepared to loan him out.

The problem is that surely no club would want to sign the Spaniard. It could be argued that he isn’t even good enough for a non-league side.

Whatever happens, the Hammers must get rid of Roberto anyway they can. Even if it means paying him the remainder of his current contract, and shipping him out the door.

The 33-year-old will go down as one of West Ham’s worst ever signings. And if they manage to sell him in January it will be nothing short of a miracle.
