And some Hammers fans are really unhappy with that news.

Goalkeeper situation a concern

David Moyes has a big decision to make this summer. Lukasz Fabianski is 36 now and his injury problems last season should be a real concern for the Scot.

Meanwhile, the Pole’s deputy Darren Randolph is 34 and let’s be honest, he’s an average goalkeeper at best.

One of the options for West Ham this summer is West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone (Football.London, ESPN, The Telegraph, The Evening Standard and The Athletic).

The 28-year-old would be a superb addition for the Hammers.

Since joining West Brom, the commanding keeper has been a real hit. In 131 games for the Baggies, he has let in 183 goals whilst keeping 30 clean sheets in the process (Transfermarkt).

Standing at 6ft 4in tall, the Baggies stopper cuts an imposing figure. He is dominant in the air and a great shot stopper. The Baggies ace is a very impressive communicator as well.

West Ham fans gutted by Sam Johnstone update

Claret and Hugh reckon that the 28-year-old will not be rocking up at the London Stadium this summer.

Moyes allegedly has a lot of faith in Lukasz Fabianski to produce the goods for at least one more season.

And that could end up being a big mistake by the Scot.

Let’s hope that he changes his mind before the new season starts.

Some West Ham fans took to Twitter and fumed as C&H’s report claiming that Johnstone will not be joining the Hammers this summer…
