West Ham United are celebrating securing their Premier League status tonight after a win against Leicester City and results elsewhere mean they can not be relegated this season.
Their 2-0 win away to the Foxes meant that a Southampton win later in the day would keep the Saints in touch, but a last minute Everton goal ensured the Hammers will start next term in the top-flight.
Fans were obviously delighted with the victory, offering particular praise to on-loan Joao Mario, whose goal opened the scoring before Mark Noble put the three points beyond doubt.
Mario has only made 12 appearances since joining in January but some supporters believe he has already shown enough to earn a permanent move to the London Stadium this summer.
Will the Hammers pay the money to sign him from Inter Milan or will they pass on the opportunity?
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…

Funny how a goal changes things cos 2-3 weeks ago most fans would've been voting no
I want us to sign Joao Mario but not for the reported 28+M. Hopefully we can sign him with a player + cash exchange https://t.co/YVXuoL4mLy

I would but not at a high price. I think we haven’t seen everything from him but not enough to spend big on him.

completely depends on the price; 20m or less then yes… anything more it's a no. He definitely can't be our most expensive signing
