Report: West Ham want to sign Conor Coady after Declan Rice said he's 'powerful to watch'

West Ham United are allegedly now keen to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Conor Coady this summer.

That’s according to talkSPORT journalist Alex Crook who claims that the skipper faces a bleak future at Molineux.

Hammers boss David Moyes needs to bolster his central defensive ranks at the London Stadium with Nayef Aguerd currently out injured and Angelo Ogbonna not anywhere near match fit.

Coady is someone who will undoubtedly appeal to Moyes considering his leadership skills and well-rounded character.

West Ham skipper Declan Rice is a huge fan of the 29-year-old and recently labelled him as someone who ‘you need in your changing room’.

Rice also suggested that Coady’s leadership skills were ‘powerful’ to watch, whilst away with the England national team.

Perhaps Dec has had a word with Moyes…

West Ham eye Conor Coady swoop

Alex Crook has suggested that the Hammers want to sign the Wolves ace, when speaking on talkSPORT this morning at around 11:03 am.

Coady has made 317 appearances for Wolves.

The 29-year-old played all 38 Premier League games for Wolves last season and scored four goals. During this outings, he averaged 0.8 tackles, 0.7 interceptions and 3.7 clearances per match (Who Scored).

Coady made 44.4 passes per match and recorded an impressive completion rate of 89.7% (Who Scored).

We think that Coady would be a useful addition for West Ham, especially if he’s available for a reasonable fee. He excels when playing in a back three and it seems as though that’s the route that Moyes wants to take this season.

Coady would bring the added bonus of being able to play in defensive midfield if need be as well.

And we’d be more than happy if West Ham sign Conor Coady from Wolves this summer, whether that be on a permanent or loan deal.
