Former West Ham midfielder Steve Lomas has urged the Hammers not to sell contract rebel, Winston Reid.
Lomas, who represented the east London outfit between 1997-2005, was speaking to talkSPORT when he said:
“Over the last two and half years Reid has been West Ham’s best, and most consistent, player
“He’s a massive loss.
“Sam is right to say they might as well keep him, rather than sell him for £2-3m. They could get two or three places higher up in the league if he stays.
“Why weaken your squad? There’s no point selling him for that.”
Sam Allardyce revealed in his press conference earlier this week that he doesn’t expect the New Zealand international to sign a new deal despite his current one expiring at the end of the current campaign.
The 26-year-old has made 19 Premier League starts for the Hammers this season, as well as one start in each of English football’s domestic cups.
