West Ham defender Ben Johnson is “likely to be sold” in the January transfer window, with his high wage demands not expected to be met by the club.
The 23-year-old has found himself out of favour at the London Stadium so far this season, with not a single minute of Premier League action coming his way.
In fact, Johnson’s only appearance has come in the EFL Cup and it is becoming increasingly likely that a move away from the Hammers could be on the cards.
The Englishman is contracted with West Ham until the end of this season, at which point he will be allowed to leave for free, should he fail to agree an extension.
“Out of favour Hammer Ben Johnson’s contract demands have been revealed with his agents wanting a £60k a week for the player to sign a new deal at West Ham.“Despite playing only one first team game this season at Lincoln City in the third round of the Carabao Cup, Johnson and his agents believe the club should agree to their extraordinary demands.“Johnson played for the U21’s earlier this week to keep match fit and is likely to be sold in January if there are any takers.”
