According to Super Haber, Gary Medel has agreed terms with West Ham United over a summer move to the London Stadium.
Medel will see his contract with Besiktas expire in the summer of 2020.
The 31-year-old has previous experience of Premier League football having turned out for Cardiff City during the 2013-14 campaign, before joining Italian giants Inter Milan.
And it appears that the midfielder is heading back to England’s top flight.
According to Super Haber, Medel has already agreed terms with West Ham, where he will link up with fellow Chilean Manuel Pellegrini.
However, it would be fair to say that the London club’s fans are not overly pleased with the news.
In this era of ‘big 6’ dominance, has finishing 7th become as good as winning a trophy? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have their say in the video below…
Indeed, it is expected that Medel will be on big wages if he moves to London and the West Ham supporters are struggling to make sense of the transfer.

Yay! Another old player! Get in @WestHamUtd!! Insanity is repeating the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Hope he’s on 100k a week too!

I’d take Camarassa but Medel? Surely it’s time he hangs up his boots.

Camarasa is good, but Medel isn’t?
