West Ham fans back move for Cahill

Image for West Ham fans back move for Cahill


Manuel Pellegrini will not have been happy with the slight defensive wobble his West Ham side suffered against Hertha Berlin on Wednesday. Ben Johnson struggled at full-back and was caught out of position on a number of occasions, and the ever-reliant partnership between Issa Diop and Fabian Balbuena started to show little cracks. That is expected in pre-season after a break, but with the Premier League season on the horizon, it must be stamped out quickly. With Claret and Hugh reporting that Pellegrini has £5million left to spend, the Chilean will be forced to look for cheap deals to improve his squad. Football Insider have reported on Thursday that the Hammers are looking into a free deal for former Chelsea enforcer Gary Cahill. Many West Ham fans took to Twitter to react to the news, with many backing their club to complete a deal for the former England international, with calling the 33-year-old an excellent back-up, making it a no-brainer to sign him.
