West Ham fans excited by report of Dani Ceballos deal

The Express reported at the weekend that West Ham United have opened talks over a £20m deal to sign Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos, and Irons fans are absolutely loving the potential move.

The Express report the former Real Betis man has been told by manager Zinedine Zidane that he has no future at the Bernabeu, and as a result he will be on his way out of the Spanish capital this summer.

The story adds that Hammers manager Manuel Pellegrini has been impressed by the scouting reports he has received on the 22-year-old, and wants him to join the Premier League side.

Considering he would be joining from Real Madrid to compete with the likes of Declan Rice and Mark Noble for a spot in the middle of the park at the London Stadium, it would undoubtedly be an exciting addition – something that hasn’t gone unnoticed by supporters.

They have been quick to have their say on the rumoured signing via social media, and it’s fair to say they are drooling over the story and the player that could easily be lining up in claret and blue next term.

While one described him as an “insane player that can pick pockets like Payet could”, another said he “would be our savviest signing ever”.
