Supporters on social media are not best pleased with the latest West Ham rumour from Sky Sports, stating that the club has had a $500k loan bid – with a view to buy for $4.5m at the end of the season – for USA centre-back Aaron Long rejected by New York Red Bulls.
As one supporter eluded to, out of all the positions that might need strengthening in the whole squad, why on earth are the board looking to bring in another centre-back?
Cheapskate Sullivan.Get out of our club.

Our saviour! The man that will keep us in the prem! The only position in the whole squad we have adequate cover in. This has to be made up! Kaveh at Sky broke it I think, so we can dismiss this out of hand completely!
