West Ham boss David Moyes said that Winston Reid’s proposed move to MLS side Nashville SC is now off, when speaking to reporters today, and quoted via Football.London.

Football Insider reported last week that the 31-year-old Hammers man jetted out to America to undergo a medical ahead of his impending move to the MLS side.

It now seems as though that reported move is off, however.

The 25-capped New Zealand international has not played a senior game for West Ham since March 2018.

Injuries have taken their toll on Reid’s Hammers career, but he is now back fully fit.

And Moyes told reporters today that his proposed move to join MLS side Nashville is off, as quoted by Football.London:

“Winston is still here, still training. He’s working towards possibly going to America but we’ve not had that confirmed yet. The club he was due to go to is off but there could be something else for him.”

Now, Moyes did suggest that there may be other clubs in the MLS that Reid could join.

It could be argued that West Ham need someone like the Kiwi around for the last few months of the season, however.

Reid joined the Hammers in 2010 for around £5 million (Eurosport). And despite his injury problems, he is a very popular player amongst West Ham fans.

And perhaps Moyes should consider keeping the 31-year-old at the club for the remainder of the season. The east London outfit are crying out for more leaders and characters. And they are two attributes that the centre-back possesses in abundance.
