West Ham striker Ricardo Vaz Te could be ready to leave Upton Park following a dispute over wage demands, according to Mirror Football.
The Portuguese striker enjoyed a fantastic vein of form in East London since joining fromBarnsleyin January, scoring 12 goals – including a crucial one at Wembley to ensure promotion to the Premier League for The Hammers.
However, Vaz Te has since met with boss Sam Allardyce and is unhappy with his terms, as others in the squad find themselves earning considerably more than the 25 year old.
Having been likened in temperament to Cristiano Ronaldo, Vaz Te is also said to be unhappy with the ambition Allardyce’s side have shown in the transfer market so far this summer, and is eager for a top ten finish in the top flight next season.
Despite his prolific form in the Championship last season, the 25 year old former Bolton man managed just 3 goals in 58 Premier League games for the Trotters, leaving West Ham reluctant to boost him up the wage bill.
