Revealed: Whopping 88% of West Ham fans would back Allen swoop

While a huge point against Tottenham at Wembley on Thursday night has created some much-welcomed breathing space between West Ham and the relegation zone, David Moyes will hope the east London club can bring in some reinforcements this month to push the Hammers well clear of the scrap to avoid the drop.

And one player who appears to be in the Scot’s thoughts is Stoke City midfielder Joe Allen, with The Daily Mail¬†recently claiming the Irons are prepared to pay ¬£15million for the 40-cap Welshman’s services. Accordingly, we asked Hammers supporters whether they’d back a deal for the 27-year-old earlier this week and the response was a resounding yes, with 88% voting in Allen’s favour.

How plausible a deal for the 5 foot 6 midfielder actually is, however, remains to be seen. The Potters will be loathed to lose such an important player, especially one who has already bagged four assists this season, while they’re in the relegation zone.
