West Ham fans are delighted after a club Insider posted an update on their Austrian attacker Marko Arnautovic on Wednesday.

After a brilliant summer transfer window, fears were raised that there was going to be a sting in the tail when Italian outlet Leggo reported that West Ham had put their player up for sale, with Roma interested.

However, ExWHUemployee, an account with very close links to the club, posted an update refuting this.

He said that Arnautovic hadn’t been put up for sale and that no one had placed a bid for him. He also said that the 29-yer-old was training “superbly”.

He joked at the end that unless his brother convinced him to go, he would be happy to stay. This comes after his brother (and agent) was spotted at Inter, reportedly trying to engineer a return to the Italian club.

West Ham fans are delighted that Arnautovic is staying at West Ham, where he will link up with new signing Andriy Yarmolenko and Javier Hernandez in what could be a lethal three-pronged attack.

One fan confidently predicted that he would get 25 goals next season while another said he deserved a pay rise after his performances last campaign.

And a few Hammers fans asked why would he want to go, given the team that Manuel Pellegrini is building. It’s a good point.

Here are the best reactions from West ham fans:
