West Ham boss David Moyes is set to make the biggest tactical decision of his short tenure at the London Stadium so far, as he’s set to commit a U-turn with one player.
The Daily Mail claim that Spanish goalkeeper Adrian is set to be handed a new contract, with the 30-year-old impressing during the recent defeat to Manchester City- where loanee Joe Hart was unable to feature against his parent side.
Adrian is widely reported to be set to retain his position heading into this weekend’s clash against Chelsea, though he’s still yet to sign a new contract and has previously spoken about his frustrations due to a lack of first-team football.
Moyes is now desperate for the Hammers to push a deal for Adrian over the line and any agreement is likely to come with assurances towards the Spaniard that he will get first-team football, handing a huge blow to Hart’s World Cup aspirations with England.
Suitors for Adrian are not short with fellow strugglers Crystal Palace known to be admirers but Moyes’ goal looks to be to cement the future of the veteran.
